song lyric about Strong-hearted Woman, a brave, yet compassionate warrior of the Modocs

 

Strong-hearted Woman

 

From the wild Lost River Valley

Back when spirits ruled the land,

You grew up in the Northwest

In our fearless Modoc band,

While other girls picked berries

And tied ribbons in their hair,

You loved to run with warriors

And hunt deadly grizzly bear.

 

Oh Strong-hearted Woman

We still talk about your skill,

As you forged the raging rapids

In the rugged winter chill,

How you charged into your battles

With a rock-solid will,

And your strong-hearted spirit

Resides among us still.

 

As the winds of war came raging

You could feel the bitter cold,

From storm clouds of the future

That our people had foretold,

But you pleaded with our warriors

And the soldiers more than once,

For peace and understanding

On the bloody battlefronts.

 

When you saw a man of peace

About to loose his mortal life,

Without a thought, you saved him from

A fearful warrior's knife.

 

Yes Strong-hearted Woman

We still talk about your skill,

As you forged the raging rapids

In the rugged winter chill,

How you charged into your battles

With a rock-solid will,

And your strong-hearted spirit

Resides among us still.
