Oh silver salmon You’re swimming up the creek Many in numbers, and a gift from above You give us food to eat Battling bears and jagged rocks You’re never gonna stop Flying up the river, you never change your ways To make it to the top
Oh, oh, oh, oh, thank you for the food you give Oh, oh, silver salmon, you help our people thrive and live Oh, oh, oh, oh, thank you for the food you give Oh, oh, silver salmon, you help our people thrive and live
The big man tries to pollute our waters We always make a stand The salmon of the waters, belong to us This is our native land So many days and nights go by Where we depend on you Oh silver salmon, where do you go We mourn and weep for you
Searching for a way to get back home Mighty salmon it won’t be long Fighting through the river in schools of rage Trying to dodge your endangered phase When you finally reach the place of your destiny You lay your eggs for my people and me You die in the river then sink to the sand Oh mighty salmon, was it part of your plan
