Written by Hank Williams and Fred Rose

Key : E  Capo: 2ns Play D

KAW- (Dm) LIGA, was a wooden Indian standing by the door

He fell in love with an Indian maid over in the antique store

Kaw-liga (A) just stood there and never let it (A7) show

So she could never answer "Yes or (Dm) No'.

He always wore his Sunday feathers and held a tomahawk.

The maiden wore her beads and braids and hoped someday he'd talk

KAW-LIGA (A) too stubborn to ever show a sign

Because his heart was made of knotty pine.


(D) Poor ol' KAW-LIGA, he never got a kiss

(G) Poor ol' KAW-LIGA, he don't know what he missed

(D) Is it any wonder that face is (A7) red

KAW-LIGA, that poor ol' wooden (D) head...(Dm)

KAW-LIGA, was a lonely Indian never went nowhere

His heart was set on th Indian maiden with the coal black hair

KAW-LIGA---A, just stood there and never let it show

So she could never answer "Yes or No".

Then one day a wealthy customer bought the Indian maid

And took her, oh, so far away, but ol' KAW-LIGA stayed

KAW-LIGA---A , just stands there as lonely as can be

And wishes he was still an old pine tree.
