Cue Sheet

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

SEQUENCE

(Opener, Figure twice for heads, middle break, figure twice for sides, closer, tag)

Running Bear
 
 

On the bank 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 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 was too wide
He couldn't reach the Little White Dove waiting on the other side
In the moonlight he could see her throwing kisses 'cross the waves
Her little heart was beating faster waiting for her Indian brave

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

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
As their hands touched and their lips met, the raging river pulled them down
Now they'll always be together in their happy hunting ground

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

Lyrics by Jiles Perry Richardson (The Big Bopper).
Recorded by Johnny Preston; Sonny James.
