Redwing Lyrics

There once was an Indian maid,
A shy little prairie maid,
Who sang a lay, a love song gay,
As on the plain she'd while away the day;

She loved a warrior bold,
This shy little maid of old,
But brave and gay, he rode one day
To battle far away.

Now, the moon shines tonight on pretty Redwing
The breeze is sighing, the night bird's crying,
For afar 'neath his star her brave is sleeping,
While Redwing's weeping her heart away.

[Instrumental]

She watched for him day and night,
She kept all the campfires bright,
And under the sky, each night she would lie,
And dream about his coming by and by;

But when all the braves returned,
The heart of Redwing yearned,
For far, far away, her warrior gay,
Fell bravely in the fray.

Now, the moon shines tonight on pretty Redwing
The breeze is sighing, the night bird's crying,
For afar 'neath his star her brave is sleeping,
While Redwing's weeping her heart away.

Now, the moon shines tonight on pretty Redwing
The breeze is sighing, the night bird's crying,
For afar 'neath his star her brave is sleeping,
While Redwing's weeping her heart away.
