Vanessa Williams
[Intro]
    Cm                    D#
You think I'm an ignorant savage
       Cm                     A#
You've been so many places, I guess it must be so
    G#             A#          G#            A#
But still I cannot see, if the savage one is me
    G#              D#                  G
How can there be so much that you don't know
          C     Am
You don't know...

[Verse 1]
    C                               Am
You think you own whatever land you land on
    C                                  Em
The earth is just a dead thing you can claim
    Am                             F
But I know ev'ry rock and tree and creature
      Dm          G             Am
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name

    C                             Am
You think the only people who are people
        C                              Em
Are the people who look and think like you
    Am                             F
But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
             Dm               G              C
You'll learn things you never knew you never knew

[Chorus]
         Am                             Em        F
Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
   Am                               Em
Or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned?
        F                 G             Em       Am
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountain?
        F/D                             G
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?
        F/D               G             C
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?

[Verse 2]
     C                                 Am
Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest
     C                                  Em
Come taste the sun-sweet berries of the earth
     Am                          F
Come roll in all the riches all around you
        Dm          G                   Am
And for once, never wonder what they're worth

    C                              Am
The rainstorm and the river are my brothers
    C                          Em
The heron and the otter are my friends
    Am                          F
And we're all connected to each other
     Dm           G               C
In a circle, in a hoop that never ends

[Bridge]
Em  F             G        Am
How high does the sycamore grow?
       Dm
If you cut it down
            Gsus4 G
Then you'll never know

[Chorus]
           Am                             Em        F
And you'll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
    Am                             Em
For whether we are white or copper-skinned
           F                 G             Em      Am
We need to sing with all the voices of the mountain
        F/D                             G
Need to paint with all the colors of the wind

        Dm                G
You can own the earth and still
           Em             F
All you'll own is earth until
        Am             Dm            C
You can paint with all colors of the wind
