There once lived an In - dian maid, a shy lit - tle prai - rie maid,
Who sang a lay a love song gay,  As on the plain she'd while a - way the day;
She loved a war - rior bold, this shy lit - tle maid of old,
But brave and gay, he rode out one day to bat - tle far a - way.
Now, the moon shines to - night on pret - ty Red Wing,
The breeze is sigh - ing, the night bird's cry - ing,
For a - far 'neath his star her brave is sleep - ing,
While Red Wing's weep - ing her heart a - way.
