ON THE WARPATH: Country singer Tim McGraw’s ”Indian Outlaw” may be the fastest-selling country hit since ”Achy Breaky Heart,” but some radio stations are refusing to play it because of such lyrics as ”You can find me in my wigwam/I’ll be beating on my tom-tom.” ”They’re degrading and racist,” says Buzi Two Lance, program director of KILI Radio in Porcupine, S.D., who voted to ban the song after local Native American listeners complained. Meanwhile, McGraw continues to perform the song. ”If my record, in a backwards way, can be a springboard for Native American issues to be heard, then I’m glad,” he says, adding, ”Somebody can sing about rednecks and I won’t get offended.”
