Running Bear

Sung by Sonny James

       G                               C                  G
On the bank of the river stood Running Bear, young Indian brave
                                         A7            D7
On the other side of the river stood his lovely Indian maid
       G                               C               G
Little White Dove was her name, such a lovely sight to see
                                                  D7               G
But their tribes fought with each other, so their love could never be

        C                 G
Running Bear loved Little White Dove
       D7              G
With a love big as the sky
        C                 G
Running Bear loved Little White Dove
       D7                 G
With a love that couldn't die

He couldn't swim the raging river 'cause the river was too wide
He couldn't reach the 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 for her Indian brave


Running Bear dove in the water, 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 raging river pulled them down
Now they'll always be together in their happy hunting ground
