KAW-LIGA
Recorded by Hank Williams
Written by Hank Williams and Fred Rose

KEY: E CAPO: 2nd PLAY: D

 Dm
KAW-  LIGA, was a wooden Indian standing by the door
He fell in love with an Indian maid over in the antique store
 A7
KAW-LIGA, just stood there and never let it  show
 Dm
So she could never answer "YES" or  "NO".

 Dm
He always wore his Sunday feathers and held a tomahawk
The maiden wore her beads and braids and hoped someday he'd talk
 A7
KAW-LIGA, too stubborn to ever show a sign
 Dm
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
 DA7
  Is it any wonder that his face is  red
 DDm
KAW-LIGA, that poor ol' wooden  head. ... 

 Dm
KAW-LIGA, was a lonely Indian never went nowhere
His heart was set on the Indian maiden with the coal black hair
 A7
KAW-LIGA, just stood there and never let it show
 Dm
So she could never answer "YES" or "NO".

 Dm
Then one day a wealthy customer bought the Indian maid
And took her, oh, so far away, but ol' KAW-LIGA stayed
 A7
KAW-LIGA, just stands there as lonely as can be
 Dm
And wishes he was still an old pine tree.

After never got a kiss do this run-

5th string open, 5th string 2nd fret, 5th string 4th fret then back to G.
After don't know what he missed do this run-
6th string 3rd fret, 6th string 2nd fret, and 6th string open then back to D. Sounds Awesome. Gives it a little more kick. I'm playing with no capo.
