Buffalo Soldier. The Persuasions. Acapella

Buffalo Soldiers originally were members of the U.S. 10th Cavalry Regiment of the United States Army, formed on September 21, 1866 at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. This nickname was given to the “Negro Cavalry” by the Native American tribes they fought in the Indian Wars. The term eventually became synonymous with all of the African American regiments formed in 1866 – Wikipedia

“Buffalo soldier,Buffalo soldier
Will you survive in this new land
Buffalo soldier,Buffalo,Buffalo,Buffalo soldier
Tell me when will they call you, you a man

In the eighteen-hundreds
In Arizona and Mexico
There came a brand new soldier yea
The Indians called him buffalo

From prison camps and slavery lord
Oh the black man came to be
He was a hard riding hero
Of the tenth calvary,hut-two-three

You know many other soldiers
Lord they wanted to desert
They were tired of the hatred yes they were
They were so tired of the hurt
Some of them were tired of the killin’
And of the misery,oh lord
But they had to keep on fighting
So one day,we would be free
We want to take a little time an thank you right here”
