NANYEHI NANYEHI OF THE CHEROKEE
YOU WERE BRAVE YOU WERE STRONG YOU WERE SEVENTEEN
LED YOUR PEOPLE IN WAR, THEN YOU STOOD FOR PEACE
NOW IT’S TIME WE REMEMBERED YOUR WORDS
YOU WILL BE HEARD
NANYEHI NANYEHI DID THE WORLD FORGET
YOU SAVED LIVES RED AND WHITE WITH YOUR BLOOD AND SWEAT
YOU GAVE HOPE YOU SHOWED KINDNESS TO ALL YOU MET
NOW THE WORLD WILL REMEMBER YOUR WORDS
YOU WILL BE HEARD
YOU WILL BE HEARD
(SOLO)
YOU WILL BE HEARD
NANYEHI NANYEHI OF THE CHEROKEE
I HAVE KNELT AT YOUR GRAVE ‘NEATH THE CEDAR TREE
AND I KNOW IN MY SOUL YOU’RE A PART OF ME
NOW THE WORLD WILL REMEMBER YOUR WORDS
YOU WILL BE HEARD
