Running Bear 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 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
too wide
He couldn't reach the Little White Dove waiting there
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 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 their 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...
