You Got To Run (Spirit of the Wind)

This rouser has lots of echoes of the circumstances of Native Americans, as well as nods to (and shouts of) the music of the First Peoples. I’ve posted this tune before, but it’s such a favorite, I can’t resist calling attention to it a second time. Good stuff by Buffy Sainte-Marie, Tanya Tagaq and band.

Babe, ain’t we been down.
We been so broke, and we been so low I kissed the ground.
But you can see yourself a winner beyond the money and the greed.
Beyond the pride is a pure untested need,
To be a champion is more than luck and speed,
It’s power and freedom in the spirit of the wind.
