Steve Walsh – Kansas Lyrics

[Intro]
Ooh ooh ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh ooh
Oh, ooh ooh, oh, ooh ooh
Ooh, ooh-ooh
[Verse 1]
Ghost man, pony boy,   midnight   ride
Where people of   the south wind lived and died
White   man come bring the blood red rain
People of the south wind rise again
Tribal dancers, twilight blaze
Medicine man sees the future and he prays
Then he hears that dust storm, guns and war
And he knows he gotta fight for what he had before
[Pre-Chorus 1]
In my mind it’s getting clearer (Clearer, clearer, clearer, clearer)
Distant memories, shades and form (Clearer, clearer, clearer, clearer)
The sound of horses growing nearer (Clearer, clearer, clearer, clearer)
The smell of wind before the storm (Clearer, clearer, clearer, clearer)
[Chorus]
I see Kansas in my mind
In my mind, oh
Kansas in my mind
The peace I left behind, oh
Kansas in my mind
[Verse 2]
Phantoms on the Santa Fe sacred ground
Prairie land vanishes, barb wire bound
White man come bring the blood red rain
People of the south wind rise–rise again
You buffalo man, paint the fire in the sky
It’s your fate, your destiny–eye for an eye
Now white man go, take your blood red chains
People of the south wind rise again
[Pre-Chorus 2]
Noble nations came together
Trust and treaties, pipes of peace
But hungry soldiers, heartless leather
Dreamed a bloodbath was their feast
[Chorus]
I see Kansas in my mind
In my mind, oh
Kansas in my mind
The peace I left behind, oh
Kansas in my mind
Kansas in my mind
(Yeah, yeah, whoa, whoa, whoa)
[Bridge]
You can chain me down but the bones of a brave man will never rest, oh
In my mind, in my mind
In my mind, in my mind
In my mind, in my mind
In my mind, in my mind
In my mind, in my mind
In my mind, in my mind
In my mind, in my mind
In my mind, in my mind

[Outro]
I will take you down, I will take you down
I will take you down, I will take you down
I will take you down, I will take you down
I will take you down, I will take you down
I will take you down, I will take you down
I will take you down, I will take you down
I will take you down, I will take you down
I will take you down, I will take you down
I will take you down
