Running Bear
Johnny Preston; Sonny James 1958
  (Jump 101)   Jerry Pierce

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
On the banks of the river
Stood a Running Bear, young Indian brave
On the other side of the river
Stood his lovely Indian maid

Circle to the left
Little White Dove was her name
Allemande left and promenade
Running Bear loved a little White Dove
With a love that couldn't die


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru four hands around
Dosado that corner one time around
Swing thru go two by two, spin the top and then
Go right and left thru my friend
Square thru 3/4 round that corner lady swing
Swing that corner lady promenade that ring
Running Bear loved a little White Dove
With a love that couldn't die


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
He couldn't swim the raging river
Cause the river was too wide
He couldn't reach his little White Dove
Waiting on the other side

Circle to the left
In the moonlight he could see her


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
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

Circle to the left
As their hands touched and their lips met


TAG

With a love that couldn't die
