alinact Lyr Req: Pocahontas (Neil Young) (2) Neil Young's 'Pocahontas' 04 Oct 04

I know Neil is a touchy subject here, but this is a serious question. In all the transcriptions I've seen of the song "Pocahontas" there are the lines "They massacred the buffalo, kitty-corner from the bank".

I've read the thread that explains that kitty-corner means (basically) diagonally opposite, but is this the meaning Neil is conveying in those lines, or is it a misinterpretation that is being perpetuated.
