lyrics

Your Beautiful Skin

I met a man and we talked all night
He told me of the pain in his life
As a child he was torn from his kin
9 years starved of Momma’s loving
He was taught who he was ain’t right
He’d be better if he were white
Oh and that just ain't right
And that just ain’t true

I love your beautiful skin
oh your beautiful skin

I met a woman who became a friend
She would read to me the words she’d penned
Harsh things about life outside
Made to feel that she had to hide
The res angel who could never fly
She was stolen away from her tribe
Land taken, she was left alone, First Nation in a foster home

God loves your beautiful skin
Oh your beautiful skin
He walks the red road you’re walking
God loves your beautiful skin

All of the missing years
All that was taken

I had a dream where the raven spoke
I saw the healing in the sweetgrass smoke
All Nations on the good road, Every wrong made right.
