Met a Chief, a Thebacha Cree
He talked about some Great Big Lie
An angry man, he stood alone
He talked about some Great Big Lie
He talked about some Great Big Lie

The treaties signed were lies, he said
We have to fight, we have to try
Let the people know, and show the world
We’re living with this Great Big Lie
We’re living with this Great Big Lie

There’s no nations in a land so cold
They’re not human, they have no soul
Just take their land with this Great Big Lie
Just take their land with this Great Big Lie

Chief Ed Bird was shot one night
A troubled Chief, that made it right
He was a leader then, didn’t need to die
He woke me up to this Great Big Lie
He woke me up to this Great Big Lie

The Chief was shot right through his door
His children watched as he hit the floor
A troubled man, did he have to die?
The first to tell of this Great Big Lie
The first to tell of this Great Big Lie

There’s no nations in a land so cold
They’re not human, they have no soul
Just take their land with this Great Big Lie
Just take their land with this Great Big Lie

Chief Ed Bird, my friend long gone
I remember you. Did you have to die?
I thank you now for your words back then
You showed the world this Great Big Lie
You showed the world this Great Big Lie

There’s no nations in a land so cold
They’re not human, they have no soul
Just take their land with this Great Big Lie
Just take their land with this Great Big Lie
