Kaw-liga 2   Hank Williams

Copyright 1952

1.	Kaw - (Dm)Li - Ga was a wooden Indian standing by the door
	He fell in love with an Indian maiden over in the antique store.
	Kaw - Li - ga just stood there and never let it (A7) show
	So she could never answer "yes" or (Dm)"no".

	He (Dm) always wore his Sunday feathers and held a tomahawk
	The maiden wore her beads and braids and hoped some day he'd talk
	Kaw - li - ga too stubborn to ever show a (A7)sign
	Because his heart was made of knotty (Dm)pine.


	(D)Poor ol' Kaw-li-ga, he never got a kiss
	(G)Poor ol' Kaw-li-ga, he don't know what he missed
	(D)Is it any wonder that his face is (A7)red?
	Kaw-li-ga, that poor ol' wooden (D)head.

2.	Kaw -(Dm)Li - Ga was a lonely Indian, never went nowhere
	His heart was set on the Indian maiden with the coal black hair
	Kaw - li - ga. just stood there and never let it (A7)show
	So she chould never answer "yes" or (Dm)"no"

	And (Dm)then one day a wealthy customer bought the Indian maid
	And took her, oh, so far away, but ol' Kaw - li -ga stayed
	Kaw - li -ga just stands there as lonely as can (A7)be
	And wishes he was still an old pine (Dm) tree.

CHORUS - (Dm)head.
