Running Bear
Johnny Preston; Sonny James 1958
  (Red Boot 3043)   Don Williamson

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

Circle left
Little White Dove was her name
Left allemande, swing and promenade you see
But their tribes fought with each other
So their love could never be


FIGURE (twice for heads, twice for sides)    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads you promenade halfway around go
Well the sides do a right & left thru and then
Square thru 4 hands around the ring go
Dosado and do an eight chain 4
Running Bear loves Little White Dove
Swing the corner girl and promenade by
Running Bear loves Little White Dove
With a love that couldn't die


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

4 ladies chain across the river
You rollaway and circle left
4 ladies rollaway and circle left go
Left allemande and weave the ring
In the moonlight he could see her
Throwing kisses across the waves
Her little heart was beating faster
Waiting for her indian brave


CLOSER    Basic

They tried to swim out to each other
But the water pulled them down
Now they'll always be together
In the happy hunting grounds

Circle left
Running Bear and Little White Dove
Left allemande, swing and promenade around
Yes, they'll always be together
In the happy hunting grounds
