bankley BS: Indian Re-Creation Camps in Germany (85* d) RE: BS: Indian Re-Creation Camps in Germany 04 Sep 09


5 years ago after 2 German friends told me about Karl May, I wrote a song called 'Llano Estacado'... I also have a few of the movies that were popular in the 60's... kind of funny hearing the characters speaking German... I think they were filmed in Yugoslavia..

'Singed by the sun, stung by the night,
Stunned by the brilliance of the Southwestern sights
Scarred in the battle's rattle of the righteous fight,
We rode as brothers while others sold their souls
To the blind ambition of bullet-ridden goals
Truth and justice, the trail we chose,
rose to meet us in the desert light

Old Shatterhand said to Winnetou "We lost some but we win a few,
back to back, I covered you as you watched over me,
Veteran amigos of a noble breed against bad hombres
who thieve more than they need
but we wouldn't concede to a stampede of greed
that would have us bleed into history"

that's an excerpt there 3 more verses, a chorus, plus a bit of German and Spanish mixed in at one point... very dusty,dry feeling

pm me your email Azzizi, and I'll send you an mp3 of it..


yeah it's easy to tell the real Natives at the re-enactments cuz they're usually wearing t-shirts and baseball caps... heh, heh
