The Crow Is Circling Above Me
The crow is circling above me,
The crow is circling above me.
He says he will give me a hawk feather,
He says he will give me a hawk feather.
This is a Ghost Dance song (a circle dance). The Ghost Dance was a religious movement that sprung up around 1890 in some Native American Tribes in the Western US.
MP3: #45 from James Mooney's Ghost Dance Recordings (1894).
