Trail Of Tears (Cherokee song)

Journal by chicken

Came dancing on the mildewed fern;
left falling to the hands of earth.
The greed of man was blamed the turn
to glory from the calm of mirth.

And when their flesh has turned to rust
their blood will finally dry on us.

The common phrase Trail of Tears refers to the forced relocation of the Cherokee Native American tribe to the Western United States in 1838-39 which resulted in the deaths of an estimated 4,000 Cherokee Indians. In the Cherokee language the event is called Nunna daul Isunyi - "the Trail Where We Cried."
Nearly a quarter of the Cherokee Nation froze or starved to death on the trail to Oklahoma ...

During the march it is said that the people would sing Amazing Grace using its inspiration to improve morale. Cherokee lyrics were written for the song, and the song has become a sort of anthem for the Cherokee people.
