Running Bear 
recorded by Sonny James
written by J.P. Richardson
 
C
On the bank of a river
              F                 C
Stood Running Bear young Indian Brave
                              
On the other side of the water
          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
 
        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

                           
He couldn't swim the raging river

          F            C
Cause the river was to wide

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

       C
In the moonlight he could see her
        F                 C 
Blowing kisses across the waves
       
And her heart was beating faster
        G7             C
Waiting for her Indian brave

        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


Running Bear dove in the water
       F                  C
Little White Dove did the same
 
And they swam out to each other
        D7                       G7
Through the swirling stream they came

         C
As their hands touched and their lips met
           F                 C
The raging river pulled them down
 
Now they'll always be together
        G7            C
In that happy hurting ground  
 
        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
