Subject: RE: Lyrics for Indian Maid ??
I remember it as you do--my father sang it in the '40's. It continues-----some of the words:

She kept all the campfires bright
She watched for him day and night,
But when the braves returned,
The heart of Red Wing yearned.

Oh, the moon shines tonight on pretty Red Wing
The breezes sighing, the night birds crying
For far 'neath the stars her brave lies sleeping,
While Red Wing's weeping her heart away
