Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies chain across that river
Roll away and circle left
You roll away and circle left now
Left allemande, now weave the ring
Running Bear loved Little White Dove
Dosado and promenade
Running Bear loved Little White Dove
With a love that would not die


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head couples square thru 4 hands around now
Dosado that corner there
Square thru 4 hands around go
Bend the line, star thru
Dive thru, square thru 3/4
Swing that corner, promenade
Running Bear loved Little White Dove
With a love that would 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.
