RUNNING BEAR
written by J.P. "Big Bopper" RIchardson
performed by the Johnny Preston
tab transcribed by Collins Crapo 
(chanting in background during verses)

[Verse 1]
A
 On the banks of the river
              D                  A
Stood Running Bear, young Indian brave
On the other side of the river
          B7            E7
Stood his lovely Indian maid
       A
Little White Dove was a-her name
       D               A
Such a lovely sight to see
But their tribes fought with each other
         E7               A
So their love could never be

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

[Verse 2]
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]
        D                 A
Running Bear loved Little White Dove
       E7              A
With a love big as the sky
        D                 A
Running Bear loved Little White Dove
       E7                 A
With a love that couldn't die(chorus)

[Verse 3]
Running Bear dove in the river
Little White Dove did the same
And they swam out to each other
Through 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]
        D                 A
Running Bear loved Little White Dove
       E7              A
With a love big as the sky
        D                 A
Running Bear loved Little White Dove
       E7                 A
With a love that couldn't die
