Cherokee Maiden

Album: The Best Of Merle Haggard (1976)
  • One night when the moon was bright on the moonlit bay
    That is where I found my little Cherokee maid
    The memory of the 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 that Cherokee Strip
    And I'll carry her away with me
    And straight as an arrow flies
    We'll ride to paradise
    My sweet little chickadee, my little Cherokee maiden and me

    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 that Cherokee Strip
    And I'll carry her away with me
    And straight as an arrow flies
    We'll ride to paradise
    My sweet little chickadee, my little Cherokee maiden and me Writer/s: CINDY WALKER
