Oh Why? ? ?

In the mountains I hear thier cry/
The spirits of ones who were forced to march or die/
It is for them that I cry, oh why oh why oh why? ? ? /
Could they not live in the peace of thier home/
and live in the mountains to hunt and to roam? /
It is for them that I cry alone, /
oh why oh why oh why? ?
On the trail of tears they marched to the west./
For the soles of thier feet they found no rest.? /
