Subject: Cowpie Submission - Kaw-Liga
KAW-LIGA by Hank Williams and Fred Rose 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.
