Thread Name: Lyr Req: Indian Maid? / Silver Bell + Red Wing
Subject: RE: Lyrics for Indian Maid ??
There once lived an Indian maid
A shy little prairie maid
Who sang a lay, a love song gay
As on the plains she whiled away the day.

She loved a warrior bold
This shy little maid of old
But bold and gay he rode one day
To battle far away.

Now the moon shines tonight on pretty Red Wing,
The breeze is sighing, the night bird crying,
For afar 'neath the moon her brave is sleeping
While Red Wing's weeping her heart away.

This is a version I learned in my childhood. If anyone else knows this version please let me know or correct me if wrong. Thanks.
