Buffy Sainte-Marie - Soldier Blue. Artista: Buffy Sainte-Marie ( Beverly Sainte-Marie). Traducciones: Alemán, Italiano. 1. This is the soundtrack of the 1970 movie Soldier Blue, in which the Sand Creek Massacre was portrayed for the first time. In the massacre, in 1864, the US army slaughtered more than a hundred peaceful Native Americans. The song is about loving one's country, which is expressed by being in harmony with nature and people instead of through fanatic patriotism. Soldier Blue" is the nickname of the main character of the movie (US soldiers were called Bluecoats), who grows to appreciate the lifestyle of Native Americans.
I tell you a story, it's a true one And I'll tell it like you'll understand And ain't gonna talk like some history man. I look out and I see a land Young and lovely, hard and strong For fifty thousand years We've danced her praises Prayed our thanks and we've just begun. Yes, this is my country And I sprang from her and I'm learnin' how to count upon her Tall trees and the corn is high country Yes, I love her and I'm learnin' how to take care of her. Whenever the news stories get me down I take a drink of freedom to think of North America from toe to crown It's never long before I know just why I belong here
Sainte-Marie wrote Universal Soldier in 1961, it later becoming a chart hit in the mid-60s for Donovan when it became popularised as a critique on the Vietnam war. Surely though the fact that she is now reviving a 50-year-old protest song is proof that it hasn’t worked. Sainte-Marie was born a Cree in Saskatchewan, Canada. American-Indians have received far worse treatment, she says, than Canadian-Indians. The US has not addressed the indigenous slavery, but in Canada we have. In 1970 she wrote and performed the million-selling theme song from the brutal western, Soldier Blue, and in 1982, she won an Oscar for the theme song from An Officer And a Gentlemen, called Up Where We Belong and sung by Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes. After all this success, the beautiful isolation of Hawaii can be a drawback for such a prolific artist and performer.
Ooh, soldier blue, soldier blue Can't you see that there's another way to love her? This is my country And I sprang from her and I'm learnin' how to count upon her Tall trees and the corn is high country Yes, I love her and I'm learnin' how to take care of her. Whenever the news stories get me down I, I take a drink of freedom to think of North America from toe to crown It's never long before I know just why I belong here
