They Stole Their Land And They Won't Give It Back

In a recent interview with German weekly Stern, producer/songwriter/musician Dieter Bohlen (infamous for 80s abomination Modern Talking) claimed that he stole most of his song titles except for Geronimo's Cadillac.

Just to prove him wrong, here's a couple of versions of the 1972 song of the same title written by "Cosmic Cowboy" Michael Martin Murphey and Charles Quattro.

Michael Martin Murphey: Geronimo's Cadillac
Hoyt Axton: Geronimo's Cadillac
Claire Hamill: Geronimo's Cadillac
Johnny Rivers: Geronimo's Cadillac
Manfred Mann's Earth Band: Geronimo's Cadillac
Dick Gaughan: Geronimo's Cadillac
John P. Strohm and The Hello Strangers: Geronimo's Cadillac
Mary McCaslin & Jim Ringer: Geronimo's Cadillac
Lennie Harvey: Geronimo's Cadillac
Joe Reilly: Geronimo's Cadillac

If you happen to have another version of this song, feel free to send it in and I'll include it in this list.

I was in Utah a couple of years ago, in an Indian goods store and they were playing a version of Geronimo's Cadillac that I had never heard before and like an idiot I didn't find out who was doing it. I wish I could get that version, I liked it a lot.
