Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
On the banks of the river
Stood Runnin' Bear, young Indian brave

Men star right, around the river
Allemande the corner and weave the ring
On the other side of the river
Stood his lovely Indian maid
Runnin' Bear loved little White Dove
With a love that couldn't die


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

4 ladies promenade the river
Back home and swing your Brave
Join hands and circle the river
Allemande the corner and weave the ring
When they kissed, their hearts beat faster
In that happy hunting ground
Runnin' Bear loved little White Dove
With a love that couldn't die


CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies chain across the river
Rollaway and circle left
You rollaway, circle the river
Allemande the corner and weave the ring
Runnin' Bear loved little White Dove
With a love big as the sky
Runnin' Bear loved little White Dove
With a love that couldn't die


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (Sides) promenade and travel halfway
Down the middle and do a full square thru
Four hands and then you're gonna swing thru
Then you swing thru once again, everybody balance
All 8 circulate and the corner lady swing
Take her by the hand and then you promenade
Runnin' Bear loved little White Dove
With a love that couldn't die


TAG

They had a love that could not die

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.
