"Running Bear" as written by and J.p. Richardson....
On the banks 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 as 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, it was too wide
He couldn't reach little White Dove
Waiting there on the other side

In the moonlight, he could see her
Throwing kisses 'cross the wave
Her little heart was beating faster
Waiting there for her brave

Running Bear loved little White Dove
With a love as big as the sky
Yes, Running Bear loved little White Dove
With a love that couldn't die

Running Bear dove in the water
Little White Dove, she did the same
As they swam out to each other
Through the swirling stream they came

Now their hands touched and their lips met
The swirling river, it pulled them down
Now they'll always be together
In their happy hunting ground

Running Bear loved little White Dove
With a love as big as the sky
Yes, Running Bear loved little White Dove
With a love that couldn't die
