Running Bear  Johnny Preston

[A] On the bank of the river
Stood Running [D]Bear, young Indian [A]brave
On the other side of the river
Stood his [B7]lovely Indian [E7]maid

Little [A]White Dove was a-her name
Such a [D]lovely sight to [A]see
But their tribes fought with each other
So their [E7]love could never [A]be


Running [D]Bear loved Little [A]White Dove
With a [E7]love big as the [A]sky
Running [D]Bear loved Little [A]White Dove
With a [E7]love that couldn't [A]die

He couldn't swim the ragin' river
'Cause the river was too wide
He couldn't reach Little White Dove
Waiting on the other side

In the moonlight he could see her
Throwing kisses 'cross the waves
Her little heart was beating faster
Waiting there for her brave


Running Bear jumped in the river
Little White Dove did the same
And they swam to each other
'Cross the swirling stream they came

As their hands touched and their lips met
The ragin' river pulled them down
Now they'll always be together
In that happy hunting ground


(chanting, fading out)
