Lyrics:

You were born;
In times; where the people;
Shared your dreams;

Your father said;
To go; to where;
Those people lived;

For you were; destined;
To lead the way;
For you were chosen;
To make them say;                 Chorus
That we were Cree;
And we needed;
To make our way;
Eeyou; Eenou;
Was your way;

You were young;
When the Nations;
Came for you;

They wanted you;
To; lead them and walk;
Towards the truth;

For you were destined;
To lead the way;
For you were chosen;
To make them say;                 Chorus
That we were Cree;
And we needed;
To make our way;
Eeyou; Eenou;
Was your way;

Billy Diamond; was your name;
Billy; the one who led the way;
Billy; the leader who found our way;
Billy Diamond; the leader who found our way;
