KAW-LIGA Recorded by Hank Williams Written by Hank Williams and Fred Rose
KAW- [Dm] LIGA, was a wooden Indian standing by the door He fell in love with an Indian maid over in the antique store KAW-LIGA - A, just stood there and never let it [A7] show So she could never answer "YES" or [Dm] "NO".
He always wore his Sunday feathers and held a tomahawk The maiden wore her beads and braids and hoped someday he'd talk KAW-LIGA - A, too stubborn to ever show a sign Because his heart was made of knotty pine.
CHORUS [D] Poor ol' KAW-LIGA, he never got a kiss [G] Poor ol' KAW-LIGA, he don't know what he missed
[D] Is it any wonder that his face is [A7] red KAW-LIGA, that poor ol' wooden [D] head. ... [Dm]
KAW-LIGA, was a lonely Indian never went nowhere His heart was set on the Indian maiden with the coal black hair KAW-LIGA - A, just stood there and never let it show So she could never answer "YES" or "NO".
Then one day a wealthy customer bought the Indian maid And took her, oh, so far away, but ol' KAW-LIGA stayed KAW-LIGA - A, just stands there as lonely as can be And wishes he was still an old pine tree.
