Running Bear Ukulele Chords

[A]Humba humba, humba humba, humba humba, humba

On the [A]bank, of the river, stood Running [D]Bear, young Indian [A]brave
On the other, bank of the river, stood his [B7]lovely, Indian [E7]maid
Little [A]White Dove, was a her name, such a [D]lovely, sight to [A]see

But their tribes, fought with each other, so their [E7]love could never [A]be.
Running [D]Bear, loved Little [A]White Dove, with a [E7]love, big as the [A]sky
Running [D]Bear, loved Little [A]White Dove, with a [E7]love that couldn’t [A]die

He couldn’t reach, Little White Dove, waiting [B7]on the other [E7]side
In the [A]moonlight, he could see her, throwing [D]kisses, cross the [A]waves

Her little heart, was beating faster, waiting [E7]there for her brave.

Running [A]Bear, jumped in the river, Little [D]White Dove did the [A]same
And they swam, to each other, cross the [B7]swirling, stream they [E7]came
As their hands, touched and their lips met, the raging [D]river, pulled them [A]

Now they’ll always, be together, in that [E7]happy hunting [A]ground
Running [D]Bear, loved Little [A]White Dove, with a [E7]love, big as the [A]sky
Running [D]Bear, loved Little [A]White Dove, with a [E7]love that couldn’t [A]die

Running [D]Bear, loved Little [A]White Dove, with a [E7]love, big as the [A]sky
Running [D]Bear, loved Little [A]White Dove, with a [E7]love that couldn’t [A]die
