Tranalation Father, have pity on me, Father, hare pity on me; I am crying for thirst, I am crying for thirst; All is gone — I have nothing to eai, All is gone — I have nothing to eat. This is the most pathetic of the Ghost'dance songs. It is snng to a plaintive tune, sometimes with tears rolling down the cheeks of the dancers as the words would bring up thoughts of their present miser- able and dependent condition. It may be considered the Indian para- phrase of the Lord's prayer. Also translated: Father have pity on me, My soul is ever hungry for thee; I am weeping, There is nothing here to satisfy me.
