About This Song


This is the story of Indian Land, USA. It wasn't written to be political or make a statement, just tell a true story.

It was written, performed, recorded, and produced by my family REBELMANN. It was recorded freestyle to pick up power/tempo.

Feedback Requested


The song is probably too long and repetitive?

It definitely is interesting and it definitely sounds like a rock song. The only advice I could give (new musician, who am I, consider the source) is it sounds like the same chords throughout the song.  (If so, I’ve done this too).  Maybe you could change that.  You built up nicely towards the end, maybe put the buildup before the last chorus.  Just ideas.

Yeah, this really rocks and I like the sound. and the vocal sounds great. Certainly an ambitious subject matter. But nothing outlaw country or southern rock can’t handle! Nice job!

Parts has that Door’s Feel.  Would of liked a little more power guitar in the beginning of the song. I also noticed the paced picked up after the first verse or so.  Maybe a slight pause or drum lead in to the faster beat.  Then throw some power guitar in there.  Nice vocals.

Who do you think you are telling me what to do?
This is my home, my land, I was here before you.
I'm riding the range, the sun's in my eyes.
Spirits are here, the mountains are high.
Navajo, Apache, Blackfeet Indian am I.

Ya come to my home in a boat from a far away land.
Steal my horse, kill the women and children of the Cheyenne.
Ya push me around, ya throw me away.
Smoke and the ashes all rise in the pain.
Navajo, Apache, Blackfeet Indian are game.
Navajo, Apache, Blackfeet Indian are game!

Home, out on the range.
Oh, the chill and the pain.
I'm down on my knees, I beg and I pray.
Women and children are all marched away.
Under the sun, the chill, and the rain.
Blood stained dark and red we march the trail today.
Blood stained dark and red we march the trail today!

Humans roam free, the Bison's the way of the land.
I've got my own way, we're children of the Red Man.
500 Nations are all locked away,
Gone is my land, my home and my say.
Navajo, Apache, Blackfeet Indian today.
Navajo, Apache, Blackfeet Indian today.

Guitar Solo - Johnathon Mann

Ya don't stop even at Wounded Knee.
Women and children the beg and the plea.
Under the sun, the chill, and the rain.
Blood stained dark and red we march the trail today.
Blood stained dark and red we march the trail today!

You are my brother, my neighbor, we're free.
We are all one, just humans are we.
One nation under one common Man.
Navajo, Apache, Blackfeet it's Indian Land.
Navajo, Apache, Blackfeet it's Indian Land!

Ya don't stop now, you all look away.
I'm down on my knees I beg and I pray.
Under the sun, the chill and the rain.
Blood stained dark and red - the Indian Man.
Blood stained dark and red - It's Indian Land!
Blood stained dark and red - It's Indian Land!
Blood stained dark and red - It's Indian Land.
