Em (making the sound of a tom-tom)
[Em] Kaw-Liga was a wooden indian standing by the door,
He fell in love with an indian maid over in the antique store.
KAW-LIGA, Just stood there and never let it [B7] show,
So she could never answer "Yes or No" [Em]
EM He always wore his Sunday feathers and held a tomahawk,
The maiden wore beads and brads and hoped someday he'd talk.
KAW-LIGA, Too stubborn to ever show a B7 sign,
Becasue his heart was made of knotty pines. [Em]
[E] Poor Old Kaw-Liga, he never got a kiss
[A] Poor Old Kaw-Liga, he don't know what he missed.
Is he any wonder that his face is [B7] red?
Kaw-Liga, that poor old wooden [E] head. [Em]
EM Kaw-Liga was a lonley indian never went nowhere,
His heart was set on the indian maid with the coal black hair.
KAW-LIGA, Just stood there and never let it B7 show,
So she could never answer "Yes or No" EM
EM Then one day a wealthy customer bought the indian maid,
And took her oh so far away but old Kaw-Liga stayed.
KAW-LIGA, Just stands there as loneley as can B7 be,
And wishes he was still an old pine tree.EM

I don't know why this stuff is allowed on here, it looks like my grandson typed it.It doesn't even fit on the page and all the words aren't even all there.In my opinion it should be deleted for being a disgrace to the song
