Idle No More Song – with chords for anyone who wants to play along.

***********************

Dm     Am          G                  Am

Jingle Dancers Moccasinned Feet

F         Am      G          Am

Idle no Idle No Idle no More

Dm      Am      G              Am

Voices rising to the drum beat

F       Am       G         Am

Idle no Idle No Idle no More

F

A drum of peace but with urgency

C          Am      G         Am

Idle no Idle No Idle no More

F

Come to the fire talk with me

C        Am       G        Am

Idle no Idle No Idle no More

We were sleeping a dreamless sleep—  Idle No Idle No Idle No More

While Turtle Island did wail and weep— Idle No Idle No Idle No More

Now we’re waking up to a spark in the night-  Idle No Idle No Idle No More

Out of the darkness into the light-  Idle No Idle No Idle No More

There’s a new round dance circling the earth-Idle No Idle No Idle No More

Signalling a time for rebirth –Idle No Idle No Idle No More

Not just first but every nation–Idle No Idle No Idle No More

Come join in the conversation–Idle No Idle No Idle No More

Would you sacrifice our rivers and lakes

Treaties we made would you forsake

Though you’ve tried, our spirit just won’t break

What you’re giving away is not yours to take

When the future of our people’s at stake

There’s a choice that we all have to make

for our children’s children’s children’s children’s sake

Idle No Idle No Idle No More (Answer Back and repeat)
