What is the song "Cherokee Nation"?

Answer

"Cherokee Nation" is a popular song written by John D. Loudermilk in 1959. The actual title of the song is "Indian Reservation (The Lament of the Cherokee Reservation Indian)." It was made popular in 1971 by the group The Raiders.

This song refers to the forced relocation of members of the Cherokee tribes from Georgia and other southeastern states to Oklahoma in the 1830s. Although The Raiders made the song popular on American radio stations, "Indian Reservation" was previously recorded by English singer Don Fardon in 1968 and Marvin Rainwater in 1959 when it was released under the title "The Pale Faced Indian."
