Running Bear
Johnny Preston; Sonny James 1958

FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Four ladies chain, across the river
You chain 'em back, and roll away
Heads a-go forward up and back, and then you - star thru
Outside two dive thru, pass thru and dosado
Same four circle half, and then you - dive thru
Square thru, sides divide, star thru, and when you do
Meet that two, dosado, and then you circle
Halfway and then dive thru, box the gnat
You pull on thru and swing and whirl your corner
Left allemande, and promenade
*You promenade the ring with your pretty little thing
You're big chief Running Bear

*You paddle down the stream with your pretty Indian queen
You're big chief Running Bear

*As shelter from the wind, he wears his old bear skin
They call him Running Bear

SEQUENCE (Figure four times, twice for heads, twice for sides)
