SEQUENCE (4 times thru: twice heads, twice sides, closer)

FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Four ladies chain, go cross the river
Chain 'em back, you chain 'em home
Head ladies roll away, same couples star thru
Dosado then do the right & left thru (turn your honey)
Dive thru, pass thru, then go right & left thru
Dive thru, square thru 3/4 then
Left allemande, dosado your partner
Corner swing 3 times and then
Left allemande new corners and do the right & left grand
When you meet you partner, promenade
*He can cut across the square, swing the girl who wasn't there
That's why they call him runnin' bear


CLOSER    Basic, corner progression

Head couples square thru count 4 hands and then
Go right & left thru, turn the girl, dive thru
Pass thru, split 2, round 1, down the middle
Star thru, pass thru, left allemande
Partners dosado, corners swing and then
Circle left, now with the corners allemande
Grand right & left 'til you meet your lady fair
Swing your lady, promenade the square
If the moon is hanging right, you can see him here tonight
That's why they call him running bear


ADDITIONAL LYRICS

*To him an ocean wave is fun, he just kicks it til it's done
That's why they call him running bear


*If you want to see him bawl, just call an extra singing call
That's why they call him joggin' bear


*To him the fast ones are too slow, and the slow ones got to go
That's why they call him runnin' bear


FIGURE (ALTERNATE, FOR CHALLENGE DANCING)   

(4 men beer mug chain:)
Dosado round your corner, turn the partner by the left
Gents star right 3/4, turn that lady left and then
New corners by the right, gents star left
Go full around and 1/4 more, you can turn her by the right
Walk by the corner, pass another, swing the next one
4 ladies want to promenade the ring
Turn partner right, left allemande and then
You dosado, then the gents star left
Star promenade your partner and go walkin'
Gents roll back, left allemande and promenade

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.
