On the banks 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 as 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, it was too wide
He couldn't reach little White Dove
Waiting there on the other side
In the moonlight, he could see her
Throwing kisses 'cross the wave
Her little heart was beating faster
Waiting there for her brave
Running Bear loved little White Dove
With a love as big as the sky
Yes, Running Bear loved little White Dove
With a love that couldn't die
Running Bear dove in the water
Little White Dove, she did the same
As they swam out to each other
Through the swirling stream they came
Now their hands touched and their lips met
The swirling river, it pulled them down
Now they'll always be together
In their happy hunting ground
Running Bear loved little White Dove
With a love as big as the sky
Yes, Running Bear loved little White Dove
With a love that couldn't die
