"All in all George A. Custer, as a soldier, obeyed to orders. Policy and solution of the Indian question were planned in Washington by president Ulysses S. Grant, gen. Sherman and gen. Sheridan.. "
Floyd Westerman2
For all the lies and hate that you did create
For all the blood that you have spilled before
You came to us with promises but we knew
You came to confiscate
You stole our land, killed our people and after all you call it just the law
With your long knives your strong big guns you killed our young our young sons

Custer died for your sin
He's been gone by the wind
Stop your stupid things
Custer died for your sin
He's been gone by the wind
Yes he's been gone by the wind

The truth the land that you did pollute
For all the tribes that you have slew before
You came to us with promises but we knew
You came to confiscate.

Custer died for your sin
He's been gone by the wind
Stop your stupid things
Custer died for your sin
He's been gone by the wind
Yes he's been gone by the wind.

For all the life and freedom that you deprive
For all the myths that you keeping alive
You came to us with promises but we knew
You came to confiscate

Custer died for your sin
He's been gone by the wind
Stop your stupid things
Custer died for your sin
He's been gone by the wind
Yes he's been gone by the wind..
