RAY STEVENS


Indian Love Call Lyrics

When I'm calling you, ooh
If you answer too, ooh

That means that I offer my love to you
To be your own
If you refuse me, I will be blue
And waiting all alone

But, if when you hear
My love call, ringing clear, ooh
And I hear you're
Answering a call so dear, ooh

Then I will know
That our love will be true
You belong to me
I belong to you, ooh, ooh, ooh

This song was made famous by Nelson Eddy and Janette McDonald in their 1936 movie, "Rose Marie". Action takes place in Canada. Eddy is a Canadian Royal Mounty, and McDonald is a famous opera singer who sets out to meet her escaped convict brother in the western Canadian wilderness. She is lost and rescued by Eddy and the two spend several days traveling back to civilization through Indian territory. One evening McDonald hears the haunting "Ooh, ooh, ooh" of the song echoing in the forest and asks Eddy what it is. He replies that it is an Indian singing his love call. Then he relates the legend that long ago an Indian brave of one tribe, fell in love with an Indian maiden of another tribe, though their two tribes were enemies. Since they couldn't be together, the brave would call out his love with this song and the echoing "ooh,ooh,ooh". And his maiden love would hear his call echoing through the wooded hills and answer by calling out her love for him, which also carried the echoing "ooh,ooh,ooh". The two lovers finally united but were caught by their respective warring tribes and put to death. Now on quiet evenings, their ghostly voices are often heard still calling out their eternal love song through the echoing wooded hills.
