  • I'm an Indian outlaw
    Half Cherokee and Choctaw
    My baby she's a Chippewa
    She's one of a kind

    All my friends call me Bear Claw
    The village chieftain is my paw-paw
    He gets his orders from my maw-maw
    She makes him walk the line

    You can find me in my wigwam
    I'll be beatin' on my tom-tom
    Pull out the pipe and smoke you some
    Hey and pass it around

    'Cause I'm an Indian outlaw
    Half Cherokee and Choctaw
    My baby she's a Chippewa
    She's one of a kind

    I ain't lookin' for trouble
    We can ride my pony double
    Make your little heart bubble, Lord
    Like a glass of wine

    Well, I remember the medicine man
    He caught runnin' water in my hands
    Drug me around by my headband
    Said I wasn't her kind

    'Cause I'm an Indian outlaw
    Half Cherokee and Choctaw
    My baby she's a Chippewa
    She's one of a kind

    Well, I can kill a deer or buffalo
    With just my arrow and my hickory bow
    From a hundred yards, don't you know
    I do it all the time

    They all gather 'round my teepee
    Late at night tryin' to catch a peek
    At me in nothin' but my buffalo briefs
    I got 'em standin' in line

    'Cause I'm an Indian outlaw
    Half Cherokee and Choctaw
    My baby she's a Chippewa
    She's one of a kind

    Cherokee people
    Cherokee tribe
    So proud to live
    So proud to die Writer/s: Gene Simmons, John D Loudermilk, John Loudermilk, Tommy Barnes
