There once was an Indian maid a shy little prairie maid who sang all day a love song gay as through the fields she'd while the hours away. She loved an Indian brave this shy little prairie maid and then one day he rode away to battle far away.. {Chorus} Oh the moon shines tonight on pretty Red Wing, the breeze is sighing, the night birds crying, For a far far away her brave is dying and Red Wings's crying her heart away. She watched for him day and night, She kept all the campfires bright, And under the sky, Each night she would lie, And dream about his coming by and by But when all the braves returned the heart of Red Wing yearned for far far away her warrior brave fell bravely in the fray. {chorus} Now the Moon shines tonight on pretty Redwing, the breeze is sighing, the night birds crying, for a far'neath his star her brave is sleeping, while Redwing's weeping her heart away.
