Cherokee Maiden (Asleep At The Wheel)

One night when the moon was bright on a moonlit plain That is where I met my little Cherokee maid Memories of our night of love still linger yet And I know I never will forget My little Cherokee maiden, I love you so Even thought we're far apart I know I'll never be tradin' my love for her For anybody else's heart Someday day I'll take a trip back to the Cherokee strip And I'll carry her away with me and Straight as the arrow flies we'll ride to paradise My sweet little chickadee, my little Cherokee maiden and me One night when the moon was bright on a moonlit plain That is where I met my little Cherokee maid Memories of our night of love still linger yet And I know I never will forget My little Cherokee maiden, I love you so Even thought we're far apart I know I'll never be tradin' my love for her For anybody else's heart Someday day I'll take a trip back to the Cherokee strip And I'll carry her away with me and Straight as the arrow flies we'll ride to paradise My sweet little chickadee, my little Cherokee maiden and me
