Lyrics

Wild Caballo   Sharon Anderson

    Randy Nagel

 

Flowing through the darkness        drinker of the wind

Into the seam that falls between     the twilight and the rim

Am I the spirit in this fleshor the one who lets me fly

The wild cabella   stretched across     a clear Chilcotin sky

I have seen you in a dreamupon a Pryors range

Was it from the 1500’s and Conquistadors you came

Or 1600’s underneath a Blackfoot’s battle cry  

To reach these refuge mountains   where Xeni Gwetin abide

We've come to feel the gentle breeze that pleads 'protect your brother'

As deer will flee the hunt to flank your band -- one with the other

And animals with smaller hooves who’d perish in the snow

Follow as you break the crust to tender shoots below

But Wildhorse Canyon brought betrayal you could not for-see

The ambush of your family rounded up and shot like thieves

Are you my haunted memory as you streak across the plain

Toss your head and let the sunlight ripple through your mane

Across a lost horizon with the dust upon your heels

Neestow you are my brother      Mighty mustang of the field

…………….

And God said I establish theea glory of the earth

And the people saw from you how they could know what freedoms worth

His promise   “I give  thee flight without wings”

The closest that the people come   is through the songs we sing

And gentle breezes call to us through the trees ‘protect your brother’

flanked  against the great First Nations band-- one with the other

A  tender kindred spirit   that may perish in the snow

Unless  the crust of ignorance someday be broke

Are you my haunted memory as you streak across the plain

Toss your head and feel the river pulsing through your veins

Across a lost horizon   with the dust upon your heels

Neestow you are my brother      Mighty mustang of the field
