Faithfull, Marianne - Ghost Dance Lyrics



What is it children that falls from the sky?
Tayi, taya, tayi, aye ya
Mannah from Heaven from most high
Food from the Father, tayi, taye ya

We shall live again, we shall live again
We shall live again, shake out the grief

Peace to your brother, give and take heed
Tayi, taya, it left two feet
One foot extended, snake to the ground
Wave of the Earth, one turn around

We shall live again, we shall live again
We shall live again, shake out the grief, babe

Stretch out your arms now dip and sway
Fruit of thy bird, tayi, taya
Threw off your shoe, haul off the sow
Dust off the words that shape from the tale

We shall live again, we shall live again
We shall live again, shake out the ghost dance

Here we are, Father, here, Holy Ghost
Bread of your bread, host of your host
We are the tears that fall from your eyes
Word of your word, cry of your cry

We shall live again, we shall live again
We shall live again, we shall live

What is it, Father, in your eye
What is this grave sign, eyes to cry
Blood of my baby, well, just what I need
What is it, hide me, way off to speed

Who is it, Father, holy that night?
What is it, Father, that moves to the right?
What is it, Father, isn't it pain?
What is it, Father, that shapes from your main?

What is it, Father, supposed to be brave?
A lot of questions, the right to live
What is it, baby, I can't do
Your mama loves you, I'm dying, too

I won't forget you, never lie
I'll always love you till I die...

Faithfull, Marianne Ghost Dance Comments
  1. gymnastix

    This recording by Marianne Faithfull of "Ghost Dance" (by Patti Smith & Lenny Kaye) features Ron Wood (guitar) and Charlie Watts (drums) of The Rolling Stones, and was produced by Keith Richards; was originally intended for an Irish AIDS benefit album. I am unsure of the album;s title, and whether the track was eventually included or not.

    this is my favorite version of the song, even though I love both Marianne and Patti
