TFT (Belated): Paul Revere and The Raiders


Not every song that will be featured in this TWO FOR TUESDAY (TFT) series will be what is generally considered as being “Christian” in the eyes of this world.  For some will be anguished cries from the pit of despair while others will be quite obviously fervent rants of rebellion.  Nonetheless, be assured that they will all be of our Heavenly Father in one way or another, and I hope that you will want to hear and fully accept the message, if you have been allowed and enabled to.


Indian Reservation
Paul Revere and The Raiders
They took the whole Cherokee Nation
Put us on this reservation
Took away our ways of life
The tomahawk
And the bow and knife
Took away our native tongue
And taught their English to our young
And all the beads we made by hand
Are nowadays made in Japan

Cherokee people
Cherokee tribe
So proud to live
So proud to die

They took the whole Indian nation
Locked us on this reservation
Though I wear a shirt and tie
I’m still a red man deep inside

Cherokee people
Cherokee tribe
So proud to live
So proud to die

But maybe someday when they learn
The Cherokee Nation will return
Will return
Will return
Will return
Will return


Hungry
Paul Revere and The Raiders
Girl you got this need to know
What I’m all about
There was something that you dig
You can’t figure out
Well now you want to know
What moves my soul
And what dips inside of my brain
Well I got this need
I just can’t control
And it’s driving me insane
I can’t take it

Because I’m hungry for those good things baby
Hungry through and through
I’m hungry for that sweet life baby
With a real fine girl like you

I can almost taste it baby
And it’s sweet as wine

A custom-tailored world
That I’ve gotta own
With a penthouse in the sky
And we’ll both get stoned
Girl I’m gonna have it all someday
If you’ll just hang on to my hand
If I break some rules along the way
Girl you
You gotta understand
It’s my way of getting’ what I want now
Because I’m hungry

Yes I’m hungry for those good things baby
Hungry through and through
Well I’m hungry for that sweet life baby
With a real fine girl like you

I can almost taste it now
Oh it’s sweet as wine
Well I ain’t gonna waste it now
When it’s finally mine
Gonna live each minute
Bill the often days
‘Til I’ve had my fill
Ah girl I’ll be rollin’ in it
Yes
Yes you know I will
Yes I will
Wow

‘Cause I’m hungry for those good things baby
Hungry through and through
I’m hungry for that sweet life baby
With a real fine girl like you
I just can’t take it now
You gotta hold my hand
You can help me make it now
I’ll be a big big man
Oh girl ‘cause I’m hungry for those good things baby
Hungry through and through
I’m hungry for that sweet life baby
With a real fine girl like you
I’m so hungry now
It gotta have a good life
I’m hungry through and through
I want the world now
Hungry for that sweet life baby
With a real find girl like you

I am really struggling with leaving your comment up, my dear Ian. For linking your name to a splog sure looks like a slick new way of spamming. Well, at least that I cannot recall running across before.
