Johnny Horton – Cherokee Boogie lyrics

Well, A Cherokee chief as he dances along
Sings an Indian boogie to a white man's song
Singin' "Hey-ho-a-lina"
"Hey-ho-a-lina"
Singin' "Hey-ho-a-lina
"Hey-ho-a-lina"
Singin' "Hey-ho-a-lina" oh oh no it's in our heads

Well, he dances over here and he dances over there
Now he's dancing with a squal called standing bear
Singin' "Hey-ho-a-lina"
"Hey-ho-a-lina"
Singin' "Hey-ho-a-lina"
"Hey-ho-a-lina"
A well a "Hey-ho-a-lina" oh oh no it's in our heads

Well, he dances on the hill and he dances on the rock
But he keeps on shaking that tomohawk
Singin' "Hey-ho-a-lina"
"Hey-ho-a-lina"
Singin' "Hey-ho-a-lina"
"Hey-ho-a-lina"
Singin' "Hey-ho-a-lina" oh oh no it's in our heads

Well, he sings a little soft and he sings a little loud
With his tom-tom beatin' so big and proud
Singin'"Hey-ho-a-lina"
"Hey-ho-a-lina"
Singin'"Hey-ho-a-lina"
"Hey-ho-a-lina"
A well a "Hey-ho-a-lina" oh oh no it's in our heads

Well, he dances over here and he dances over there
Now he's dancing with a squal called standing bear
Singin' "Hey-ho-a-lina"
"Hey-ho-a-lina"
Singin' "Hey-ho-a-lina"
"Hey-ho-a-lina"
A well a "Hey-ho-a-lina" oh oh no it's in our heads

Now, he's a Cherokee cheif as a you all might know
When he keeps on a singing nuven-yo
Singin'"Hey-ho-a-lina"
"Hey-ho-a-lina"
Singin'"Hey-ho-a-lina"
"Hey-ho-a-lina"
Singin' "Hey-ho-a-lina" oh oh no it's in our heads
