Cherokee Maiden lyrics

One night when the moon was bright o'er a moonlight glade
That is where I found my little Cherokee maid
The me'mry of that night of love is lingering yet and I know I never will forget
My little Cherokee maiden I love her so and though we're far apart
I know I'll never be tradin' my love for her for anybody else's heart
Someday I'll make a trip back to the Cherokee strip
And I'll carry her away with me
And straight as an arrow flies we'll live to paradise

My sweet little chickadee my little Cherokee maiden and me
[ sax ]
My little Cherokee maiden I love her so...
