MEDICINE MAN

I'll bring you the talon from an eagle,
a big black pearl from the sea
I'll bring one and twenty ponies
if you'll bring Wildflower to me

Medicine man, make your magic mine,
turn Wildflower to a clinging vine
Medicine man, won't you please help me
Don't leave me down in misery

Rattle them bones
and roll them stones
and make Wildflower mine

I will bring you white buffalo
I'll bring honey from the bee
I'll keep fire-water flowing
if you'll get the big chief to agree

Medicine man, help me if you can,
write a secret message in the sand
Medicine man, please let her know,
tell Wildflower that I love her so

Take the breeze
and shake the trees
and make Wildflower mine

Now she has no use for a white man,
helpless and worthless like me
Tell her father Big-Strong-Hand
to let Wildflower comfort me

Medicine man, medicine man,
let it be known throughout the land
Medicine man, medicine man
I have to have the hand of Wildflower

Take this piece of calico,
make a dress with a pretty bow
Tie it with a thread of lace,
take it to your secret place
Go into your sacred dance,
say a prayer for our romance
and make Wildflower mine
