Part 1:
Sweet In - dian maid - en,
Since first I met you,

Child of the prai - rie,
Your love keeps call - ing,
My heart en - thrall - ing,
Cher - o - kee.
 
Part 2:
Dreams of Sum - mer time,
Of lov - er time gone by,
Throng my mem - o - ry,
So ten - der - ly and sigh,
My sweet In - dian maid - en,
One day I'll hold you,
In my arms fold you,
Cher - o - kee.
