RUNNING BEAR
written by J.P. "Big Bopper" RIchardson
performed by the Johnny Preston
tab transcribed by Collins Crapo 

(chanting in background during verses)

C
 On the bank of the river
              F                  C
Stood Running Bear, young Indian brave
On the other side of the river
          D7            G7
Stood his lovely Indian maid
       C
Little White Dove was a-her name
       F               C
Such a lovely sight to see
But their tribes fought with each other
         G7               C
So their love could never be

CHORUS:
        F                 C
Running Bear loved Little White Dove
       G7              C
With a love big as the sky
        F                 C
Running Bear loved Little White Dove
       G7                 C
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)

Verse 3:
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)
