INDIAN MAID (Sheb Wooley) Sheb Wooley - 1960 Now, way up in the Oklahoma hills Mid the white oak trees and the daffodils Lived the prettiest Indian maid I ever saw She was the great granddaughter of Geronimo And her Ma was the tribe of the Navajo I thought I'd like to have her for my squaw I got to know this Indian miss And then set about to steal me a kiss She was just as sweet as the mornin' dew We got out under that Indian moon And then we really started to spoon 'Cause she was a romancin' little Sioux Mmmmmm, I love my Indian maid Oh, I wish I could of stayed I said, "Uh, honey, I love you" She said, "Pete, I love you too" I'll never forget my little Indian maid Then along came a Chief and seventeen braves And they started out a-diggin' a grave And I said, "Who's that for?", and the Chief said, "You!" Well they kept on diggin' and diggin' away And I turned to the chief and again I'd say "Is that sure enough for me?", and the chief said, "Ugh!" I said, "Now Chief, I'll marry your daughter But first I gotta have a drink of water I think I'll run down to the river and get me a drink" I told White Dove to kiss me quick And I started out runnin' through them sticks And I tore my pants and my rawhide underwear I kept on runnin', I was afraid to walk 'Cause here come the Chief with his tommyhawk And I was sailin' over them cactus just like a bird My boots wore out and I'm all scratched up And no cowboy should have such luck Excuse me folks, I'd better get back to the herd I love my Indian maid Mmmmmm, I wish I could of stayed I wanta go back to see, but the Chief's still after me I'll never forget my little Indian maid (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - February 2011)
