Lyrics
Sweet Indian warrior
Since first I met you
I can't forget you
Cherokee sweetheart

Child of the prairie
Your love keeps calling
My heart enthralling
Ooh Cherokee

Dreams of summertime
Of wintertime gone by
Throng my memory so tenderly and sigh

My sweet Indian warrior
One day I'll hold you
In my arms fold you
Oh Cherokee

Brave Indian warrior
Since I first met you
I can't forget you
Cherokee sweetheart

Child of the prairie
Your love keeps calling
My heart enthralling
Ooh Cherokee

Dreams of summertime
Of wintertime gone by
Throng my memory so tenderly and sigh

My sweet Indian warrior
One day I'll hold you
In my arms enfold you
Ooh Cherokee
