Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Walk around the corner lady then, see-saw your partner
Join up your hands, circle left around the ring
Let's have the men star right one time go round
Left allemande and then weave the ring
Little White Dove was her name
Swing your lady round and promenade
But their tribes fought with each other
So their love could never be


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head ladies chain across the ring
The heads promenade halfway then lead to the right
Right & left thru turn the girl, then you veer to the left
Chain down the line, turn the girl tonight
Pass the ocean here, scoot back across now
Swing that corner lady around and you promenade
But their tribes fought with each other
So their love could never be


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads make a left hand star, go to your corner
Split two, go 'round one, make a line
Forward up & back, star thru, California twirl
Then make a right hand star once around
Exactly once, girls turn back, swing the corner man
Then promenade around you go
Well he could cut across the square to swing a girl who wasn't there
They call him big Chief Running Bear

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.
