My last night in Oklahoma
I held your hand then said goodbye
Your words in my ears
I held back the tears
Wondering where I'd finally cry

Driving out to California
Still see you dancin' in my mind
I wonder when
I'll see you again
Somewhere down the road by and by
					
CHORUS
The road's my home
The road's my home
Spent some time in Albuquerque Sang at a big gathering there Saw your head bowed Way back in the crowd I really tried not to stare Saw you again up in Denver Your body moved with strength and grace I held your hand once more Then I walked out the door I'm bound to move from place to place CHORUS Can't stay in one place and pretend This highway I'm on has no end No end

ABOUT THE POW-WOW TRAIL

This is the story of one sad pow-wow dancer. Whenever I've been to a pow-wow, I've wondered what the lives of the singers and dancers must be like. They move house and home from place to place for months on end -- then I realized they're just like me! Always on the road.


FYI -- the above photos are taken from Susan Braine's book "Heartbeat...Drumbeat."

DRUMBEAT...HEARTBEAT: A CELEBRATION OF THE POW-WOW (WE ARE STILL HERE: NATIVE AMERICANS TODAY) by Susan Braine

Arigon's friend Susan Braine assembled a fascinating book about the Pow-Wow culture designed for younger readers. Her photos are beautiful and the text makes you feel like you're in your pow-wow chair sitting next to Susan and chatting with the singers and dancers. Susan writes in the Preface, "I love to see my people working together, enjoying themselves, and lookin' good. I love being with my family and friends. I love seeing old traditions being kept alive." Hearing that, it makes sense why Indians still follow the Pow-Wow Trail.
