Lyrics

I am stunned and I am broken and my head is in my hand
For she who said she love me will not wed an indian man
My gods who were wild ridden stand quiet by my side
For although I loved her she would not be my bride
Oh goodbye softly sweet one it was splended while it ran
Goodbye my bitter white girl I'll forget you if I can
She came up to the pueblo with her bright blonde hair
They told me not to love her but I did not care
She took me to her parties she carried me around
And I was a proud one the tallest man in town
For I found great wonder all wrapped in brilliant dreams
I held her strong but gentle as kings have held their queens
I learned to drink strong whiskey as she took me here and there
Until life without my whiskey I could not bear
Oh goodbye softly sweet one..
[ guitar ]
Well when she came to leave me she took me by the arm
And she said she loved me and would not do me harm
But she would not marry not an indian she said
She thanked me for my offer and I wished that I was dead
Now I'm back among my people and they are kind to me
Although I'm sad with staggers when I drink that tough whiskey
For I've been a white girl's pet a captive indian
Shown off and discarded just a drunk who might have been
Oh goodbye softly sweet one..
Goodbye softly sweet one..
