The first A Capella WikiRiffs song! =D


I figured I'd never be able to write anything that sounded Native American in origin, and doing that would probably be kinda disrespectful, so I decided to make this song different to anything else I've written so far. I wrote it to be like renaissance choral music but without a set time signature, so it's more free-form.

During day my pen is scratching
catching details, missing nothing
night falls and the flames are burning
embers to the sky returning

I am investigating the historic
feels euphoric, they have
No reservations in every sense
My work condensed
in oh-eight into one volume,
which told the same story
non-fictional, glorious
freed from all pretense

Last of a nomadic people gathered on the plains
From all their ancestors, they alone remain
I have taken time to learn their history and life ways
Learned of times where none were spared and none were saved

Here am I, a so-called American man
spending time here among the Cheyenne
