In 1973 bracht Redbone het politiek georiënteerde "We Were All Wounded At Wounded Knee" uit, ter herinnering aan het bloedbad van een band van Sioux Indianen door de Zevende Cavalerie in 1890. Pat verteld: "CBS / Epic wou het niet opnemen, zodat ik de opnamekosten voor mijn eigen rekening heb genomen. Ze deden me een plezier en drukten zo'n 500 exemplaren, en ik nam de platen onder mijn arm en nam ze mee naar Europa. Ik verspreidde de single onder de radiostations in Nederland en voordat ik het in de gaten had, was het een nummer 1 hit in Europa. Ondanks dit succes wilde men het niet uitbrengen in de V.S. Zelfs op het album Wovoka uit 1973 en de andere later op de Amerikaanse releases, Greatest hits en de onlangs "Essential" 2003 release, mocht het lied "We Were All Wounded At Wounded Knee" niet worden opgenomen. Het lied is te politiek, te controversieel voor de Amerikaanse regering, zelfs nog in 2005.

Songtekst

We were all wounded at Wounded Knee - you and me
We were all wounded at Wounded Knee - you and me
In the name of manifest destiny
You and me - you and me - you and me

They made us many promises but always broke their word
They penned us in like buffalo, drove us like a herd
And finally on the reservation
Where we'd gone for our preservation
We were all wiped out by the seventh cavalry
You and me - you and me

We were all wounded at Wounded Knee - you and me
We were all wounded at Wounded Knee - you and me
In the name of manifest destiny
You and me - you and me - you and me

Now we make our promises, we won't break our word
We'll sing, sing, sing out our story 'till the truth is heard
There's a whole new generation
Braves who dream of veneration
Who were not wiped out by the seventh cavalry
You and me - you and me

We were all wounded at Wounded Knee - you and me
We were all wounded at Wounded Knee - you and me
We were all wounded - by Wounded Knee...
