     [D]Aurora Borealis
    The icy sky at night
    [Em]Paddles cut the water
    In a [D]long and hurried flight
    From the [A]white man [C] to the [G]fields of [D]green
    and the [A]homeland [C] we've [G]never [D]seen

    [D]They killed us in our teepees
    And they cut our women down
    They [Em]might have left some babies
    [D]Cryin' on the ground
    But the [A]firesticks [C]and the [G]wagons [D]come
    And the [A]night falls[C] on the [G]settin' [D]sun

    [D]They massacred the buffalo
    Kitty corner from the bank
    The [Em]taxis run across my feet
    And my [D]eyes have turned to blanks
    In my [A]little box [C]at the [G]top of the [D]stairs
    With my [A]indian rug[C] and a [G]pipe to [D]share

    [D]I wish I was a trapper
    I would give a thousand pelts
    To [Em]sleep with Pocahontas
    and [D]find out how she felt
    In the [A]mornin' [C]on the [G]fields of [D]green
    In the [A]homeland[C] we've [G]never [D]seen

    [D]And maybe Marlon Brando
    Will be there by the fire
    We'll [Em]sit and talk of Hollywood
    And the [D]good things there for hire
    And the [A]Astradome [C]and the [G]first tee[D]pee
    Marlon [A]Brando, [C]Poca[G]hontas and [D]me
    Marlon [A]Brando, [C]Poca[G]hontas and [D]me

I've never heard this song before, but the D posting you've put here is comfortable for singing/playing. G is also good for playing, tho a tad low for singing. I like both!

I am liking the D better too Sharon, thanks for the input. I have been playing this in F as well and I think that is my favourite, but D should be best for the group.
