"Run to the Hills" is Iron Maiden's sixth single and the first single from their 1982 album The Number of the Beast. The song talks about the forced expulsion of Native Americans to the western United States, presumably during the presidency of Andrew Jackson when the moves were enforced by the U.S. Army ("soldier blue in the barren wastes"). It may also possibly be about the Sioux Wars, when Lakota land in the Dakotas was forcibly taken over by the U.S. Army ("We fought him hard, we fought him well, out on the Plains, we gave him hell.) ("Riding through dust clouds and barren wastes, galloping hard on the Plains.") It was written by Steve Harris, bassist and founder of the band. It remains as one of the band's most popular songs.
