Lyrics

Isht a Lhampko (Have Strength)©
words and music Grant Maloy Smith

Earth below my blanket Sky above my head Just outside my vision The sky was turning red Water is our life line Rain is like our blood Why's our whole world dying? Lord, what have we done? But it's all right We're still breathing Isht a Lhampko We're not leavingAir has come against us Clouds of humma roll Listen to the wind song Singing from his soul Fire has cooked our rabbits And lit our skies for years We will not be beaten We have walked the trail of tears But it's all right We're still breathing Isht a Lhampko We're not leaving
