John He left us here To sing his song To build a totem In his name Carving the wood of life Carefully Choosing the right animals Choosing carefully our Four legged brothers For his totem to keep his spirit safe to keep his dreams alive
some say that the T in his name was for thunder others say it was trouble yet others say it was for treaties broken more than once John T. Williams Was taken From our drum circle Sooner Than expected..
Today our drum beats Are the echo's From our hearts Broken once again.... Today we send His name, his..our song, our drum beats Up to the winds of four directions
A song and drumbeat That cries... For justice for John T All his relations.....
