Red Brother Red Sister - Bruce Cockburn

    Went to the museum, red brother
    saw your ancient bloom cut, pressed and dried
    a sign said wasn't it clever what they used to do
    but it never did say how they died.
    (refrain)  Hey hey hey,
               hey hey hey

    Went to Regina, red sister
    heard a cab driver say what he'd seen.
    "there's a grand place to eat out on Number One
    all WHITE ladies if you know what I mean".


    Went to a pow wow, red brother.
    felt the people's love/joy flow around.
    It left me crying just thinking about it
    how they used my saviour's name to keep you down.
