Running Bear

Johnny Preston

 A
  On the bank of the river
 DA
Stood Running Bear, young Indian brave
On the other side of the river
 B7E7
Stood his lovely Indian maid

 A
Little White Dove was a-her name
 DA
Such a lovely sight to see
But their tribes fought with each other
 E7A
So their love could never be

** CHORUS:

 DA
Running Bear loved Little White Dove
 E7A
With a love big as the sky
 DA
Running Bear loved Little White Dove
 E7A
With a love that couldn't 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

(chorus)

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

(chorus)

(chanting, fading out)
