Wild West Show????

Just curious if anyone has heard the country song "Wild West Show" by a group called Big & Rich?

Let's see if I remember the lyrics right.

Lets smoke the peace pipe
and forget about who's wrong or right.
Hey-ya, hey-yaaaaa, hey
It was a big show down, oh yea we stood our ground
Shot out the lights, it got a little crazy
Don't want to see us go the way of the buffalo

Yeah, I've heard it. Just more of the same like Tim McGraw's Indian Outlaw. Make money poking fun at the Natives.

Right now white folks down in Brentwood are trying to save a 200 yr old cut stone fence built by slaves and Irish immigrants. They'll fight tooth and nail to save an "irreplaceable part" of their heritage, but continue to crap and whiz on us and ours. We will probably never get any justice in this life or this world, but come Judgement Day....paybacks!!!!!

ALL of the above. But please don't compare it to Tim McGraw's Indian Outlaw. I LIKED that song.

This one has no redeeming qualities.

I really hate all that cowboys and indians crap. Country music is written and sung by cowboys and girls so of course they are going to make dummo references to stuff, and think that it's a way of paying tribute to some great moment in history. (whatever) This thread just reminded me of a caption I read on the back of a video entitled "Cowboys and Indians- The untold Story" I looked at the back to see what it was about because it looked documentary-ish, and one of the last statements it made was something like "After all is said and done the only thing left of the Native Americans is myths and legends of a forgotten culture" UHm? ok? Well my 8 yr. old was like what you looking at Ma, and after looking at it he says...."Guess they never been to a rez huh ma?" lol I think that that is the way these country musicians view Native Americans, and Native American life. Like Natives and Native life are just something that has been completely revamped and assimilated just like the land and the laws of the land. Songs like this just show that they want to think that way.
