Petie’s Song (They Killed My Dog Ma) Day I was Born there was a mighty storm. Now the church roof gone. So the bells won’t chime. The people cried, cried, cried, lord they cried. Sister Mary lied, “That child’s not mine.” They killed my dog ma. They killed my dog. Killed my dog ma. I read the bible. I go to church. I hear the preacher but it still hurts. He says that Jesus was born a man. What his daddy dealt him was a dead man’s hand. Repeat chorus: I know what coming and lord it’s coming fast. We all got cars but not enough gas. We drive, drive, drive, but we go nowhere. They’ve killed my dog ma that’s just not fair! They killed my dog ma. They killed my dog. Oh that Kar, damn that kar ma It hit my dog ma. It hit my dog. Killed my dog ma. It killed my stop…. Georgie Jessup Mauler copyright 2018 winkte music/ascap

It Takes Nothing Don't want power don't want your pain. Want to live my life so that spirit will remain. Don't need your money, I'm not your whore. I've had enough of fork tongue to last a million years or more! chorus: It takes, nothing, to give a man his pride. Nothing, judge her on how she rides. It takes Nothing, if the greedy man steps aside! Nothing, it takes nothing. Never asked directions, never asked for the car. Got feet for walkin', you know they've take me this far. You think love's for liars, talking behind closed doors. Money buys you everything, you think it evens up the score! repeat chorus: But it takes Nothing...... Bridge: Now I've seen all kinds of people trying to rule the world. I've seen too many people trying to ruin the world.... GOD said to man, "Here's everything you'll ever need!" Man never being satisfied said, "greed is my need." Food, clothing, and shelter, what it takes to survive! There was a time you never owed another man to keep your body alive! repeats chorus: It takes Nothing.......

Where The Buffalo Roam Nothing is black or white when you take your first breath If you’re searching for the new frontier you can’t go west See the faces, in a land full of bones This dreams gone crazy ‘cause this is not a home In the land where the buffalo roam I’m free Yanipi Kta O’wancha’ ya In the land where the buffalo roam Took it from the black hills, it’s in the banks of their souls Made a lot of rich men from blood on that gold They took the Paha Sapa, really fucked it up Carved the face of more lies, monuments to genocide Repeat chorus: Bridge: They don’t believe – when we sing about love They don’t believe – when we say we want peace They don’t believe – when we tell them that it’s freedom In the land where the buffalo roam: Repeat first verse and chorus to outro: For the Cheyenne and Arapaho For the Crow and Lakota For the Pawnee and Comanche The the Kiowa and Omaha Georgie Jessup Mauler copyright 2018 winkte music/ascap

Fools Crow 04:14
Fools Crow Eyes that see right through me, a heart that feels the pain A smile that’s gonna heal with a love that never ends His body’s in his Mother Earth, his spirit’s in the sky Will you come to see me one day, will you teach me how to fly? Fools Crow, Fools Crow I wish that I could feel you, I’d love to kiss your hands Just to sit and listen to a wise and holy man I’ll bet you’d tell me something to help me understand The power of the wisdom before I’m buried in this land Fools Crow, Fools Crow Bridge: Hollow Bone I will become Your voice I hear with the morning sun You lived your life in a simple way The road you walked I begin today Fasting up on Bear Butte, praying on the hill Makes a person wonder why man still has to kill? Everything that tries to live, everything that moves too slow You took the time to look inside to let your ego go Fools Crow, Fools Crow Georgie Jessup Mauler copyright 2018 winkte music/ascap

Hoka Hey Somewhere where the pavement turns to sand I’m gonna walk out and make a stand Crazy Horse, Sitting Bull, Jesus Its a power deal, they have to kill us I can’t believe what they’ve done to the babies I can’t believe what they’ve done to you Get up, stand up, get up, stand up Hoka Hey Hoka Hey Wasicu comin’ after you Count some coup on the wasicu Bureaucratic Genocide But they can’t kill us, we keep coming back alive I can’t believe what they’ve done to the mountains I can’t believe what they put in the sea Get up, stand up, get up, stand up Hoka Hey Hoka Hey… Let the Thunderbirds flap their wings It ain’t over ‘til Heyoka sing Martin Luther, Anna Mae, and Jesus Its a power deal, they have to kill us I can’t believe what we’ve done to Creation Can’t believe they call it humanity Get up, stand up, get up, stand up Hoka Hey Hoka Hey Georgie Jessup Mauler Copyright 2010 winkte music

Find Some Love (on your own) Black man living down in Africa Saying something’s very, very wrong You won’t read about it in the Wall Street Journal You won’t hear it from your Uncle Thomas Chorus: You gotta reach down in your heart Reach down in you heart And find some love on your own Forest are burning in South America They say the cows need more space But you won’t find out the jungle is dying As you drive through that burger place Repeat chorus: Bridge You have to open your eyes and see There is a world full of mystery Be all that you can be But don’t’ reach for a savior to set you free I know this man with all the money in the world He’s got everything he don’t need Tried to feed starving people With his heartache and misery Repeat chorus/outro Word and music Georgie Jessup Mauler copyright 2007 winkte music/ascap

Talkin’ To Myself I can hear the thunder of wasicu guns. Hear the children screamin’ mothers dyin’ on the run. I can see the eagle fly into the sun. Cryin’ for his brothers when all is said and done. I don't know why I sing this song~I don't know why I sing the blues Am I just talking ~ to myself ~ Talking Talkin’ to myself: Madmen are the leaders, (with their) sick little minds. Why do they fear the circle, (and) make you toe the line? You should not live in fear of the man and his might. Say you stand for freedom and fight the good fight! Can we change this madness, heal the human race? It’s happen since the white man ran over this place. Talk with Seven Arrows, learn the wisdom of the way. Understand the circle, try to live it every day.

about

Georgie Jessup’s songwriting is influenced by everything from old school country to Memphis R&B, placing her music firmly in the “cosmic” Americana Music genre. Her lyrics reflect her outspoken advocacy for animal rights, Native American issues, transgender rights and environmental sanity. The subject of an award winning documentary film, “Woman in A Man’s Suit,” Georgie also has five, well received, CDs available. “Georgie sings from the heart, like a rare flower in a wilderness,” says blues diva Candye Kane. “She speaks to us about the deepest issues. Issues that all of us should care about, but so many of us pretend don’t affect us.”

My cover of Working class Hero by John Lennon is worth the price of this CD. The updated version has a bonus track.
