Running Bear

In the style of

Johnny Preston

Lyrics

on the bank
of the river
stood running bear
young indian brave

on the other
side of the river
stood his lovely
indian maid

little white dove
was a-her name
such a lovely
sight to see

but their tribes
fought with
each other
so their love
could never be

running bear
loved little
white dove
with a love
big as the sky

running bear
loved little
white dove
with a love
that couldn't die

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

running bear
loved little
white dove
with a love
big as the sky

running bear
loved little
white dove
with a love
that couldn't die

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 that happy
hunting ground

running bear
loved little
white dove
with a love
big as the sky

running bear
loved little
white dove
with a love
that couldn't die
