My little Cherokee Maiden, I love her so. And tho we're far apart,
D7 G A7 D7
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.
Cm G E7 Am Cm
And straight as an arrow flies, we'll ride to paradise,
G E7 Am7 D7 G
My sweet little chickadee, My little Cherokee Maiden and me.
