"Cherokee Boogie" Lyrics

Johnny Horton

(Moon Mullican - William C. Redbird)

Oh, a Cherokee chief as he dances along
He sings an indian boogie to a white man's song
Singing he-ho-a-lena, singing he-ho-a-lena
Singing he-ho-a-lena, oh-oh, na-which-a-na-hey.

Well, he dances over here and he dances over there
Now he's dancing with a squaw called Standing Bear
Singing he-ho-a-lena, singing he-ho-a-lena
Singing he-ho-a-lena, oh-oh, na-which-a-na-hey.

--- Instrumental ---

Well, he dances on a hill and he dances on a rock
But he keeps on shaking his ol' tomahawk
Singing he-ho-a-lena, singing he-ho-a-lena
Singing he-ho-a-lena, oh-oh, na-which-a-na-hey.

Well, he sings a little soft and he sings a little loud
And his tom-tom beatin' so big and proud
Singing he-ho-a-lena, singing he-ho-a-lena
Singing he-ho-a-lena, oh-oh, na-which-a-na-hey.

--- Instrumental ---

Well, he dances over here and he dances over there
Now he's dancing with a squaw called Standing Bear
Singing he-ho-a-lena, singing he-ho-a-lena
Singing he-ho-a-lena, oh-oh, na-which-a-na-hey.

Now he's a Cherokee cheif as a you all might know
When he keeps on a singing nuven-yo
Singing he-ho-a-lena, singing he-ho-a-lena
Singing he-ho-a-lena, oh-oh, na-which-a-na-hey...
