One night when the moon was bright on the moonlit bay
That is where I found my little Cherokee maid
The memory of the that night of love is lingering yet
And I know I never will forget

My little Cherokee Maiden, I love her so
And though we're far apart
I know I'll never be tradin' my love for her
For anybody else's heart

Someday I'll make a trip back to that Cherokee Strip
And I'll carry her away with me
And straight as an arrow flies, we'll ride to paradise
My sweet little chickadee, my little Cherokee Maiden and me

My little Cherokee Maiden, I love her so
And though we're far apart
I know I'll never be tradin' my love for her
For anybody else's heart

Someday I'll make a trip back to that Cherokee Strip
And I'll carry her away with me
And straight as an arrow flies, we'll ride to paradise
My sweet little chickadee, my little Cherokee Maiden and me

My little Cherokee Maiden, I love her so
And though we're far apart
I know I'll never be tradin' my love for her
For anybody else's heart

Someday I'll make a trip back to that Cherokee Strip
And I'll carry her away with me
And straight as an arrow flies, we'll ride to paradise
My sweet little chickadee, my little Cherokee Maiden and me
