Paul_Revere_And_The_Raiders_-_Indian_Reservation#20 – The Raiders – “Indian Reservation (The Lament of the Cherokee Reservation Indian)” – (1971)

This awesome rock song by The Raiders (Paul Revere and the Raiders up until 1970) was a #1 hit in the U.S. It was recorded by a couple of artists prior to this band doing it, but they really did it. The lyrics are well done. The beat is kind of threatening – not often are there hit songs about a fairly sad part of American history… unless, you know, you’re Gordon Lightfoot.
