Running Bear

Song Author J.P. Richardson Lyrics by: J.P. Richardson Performer: Sonny James Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]On the bank of a river
Stood Running[F] Bear young Indian [C]Brave

On the other side of the water
Stood his [D7]lovely Indian [G7]maid   

Little [C]White Dove was-a her name
Such a [F]lovely sight to [C]see  

But their tribes fought with each other
So their [G7]love could never [C]be  

Running [F]Bear loved little [C]White Dove
With a [G7]love big as the [C]sky  
Running [F]Bear loved little [C]White Dove
With a [G7]love that couldn't [C]die  


He couldn't swim the raging river
Cause th[F]e river was to[C] wide

He couldn't reach little white dove
Waiting [D7]on the other [G7]side   

In the[C] moonlight he could see her
Blowing [F]kisses across the [C]waves

And her heart was beating faster
Waiting [G7]for her Indian [C]brave

Running [F]Bear loved little [C]White Dove
With a [G7]love big as the [C]sky  
Running [F]Bear loved little [C]White Dove
With a [G7]love that couldn't [C]die  


Running Bear dove in the water
Little [F]White Dove did the [C]same

And they swam out to each other
Through[D7] the swirling stream they [G7]came   

As their [C]hands touched and their lips met
The raging [F]river pulled them [C]down

Now they'll always be together
In that [G7]happy hurting [C]ground

Running [F]Bear loved little [C]White Dove
With a [G7]love big as the [C]sky  
Running [F]Bear loved little [C]White Dove
With a [G7]love that couldn't [C]die  

On the bank of a river
Stood Running Bear young Indian Brave

On the other side of the water
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 raging river
Cause the river was to wide

He couldn't reach little white dove
Waiting on the other side

In the moonlight he could see her
Blowing kisses across the waves

And her heart was beating faster
Waiting for her Indian 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 hurting 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
