Thread Name: Lyr Req: Heart of the Appaloosa (Fred Small)
Subject: Heart of the Appaloosa

I'm looking for the lyrics and/or composer of an American folk song about Chief Joseph. I remember the song from about ten years ago, but I've been unable to find any info on the song.

I recall from my memory, that the chorus went something like this:

"Rolling-Thunder-in-the-Mountains lead his people across the Great Divide. There's blood on the snow in the hills of Idaho, but the heart of the Appaloosa never die."
