Intro B B E E

E
Oh Cherokee Chief as he dances along

he sings an Indian boogie to a white man’s song

Chorus
         A
Singin’ “Hey Ho-alena” (Hey Ho-alena)
         E
Singin’ “Hey Ho-alena” (Hey Ho-alena)
         B                                      E

E
Well he dances over here, and he dances over there.

And he dances with a squaw called “Standin’ Bear”

(Chorus)

Guitar Solo

E
Well he dances in a trot and he dances in a walk

but he keeps on a shakin’ his old tommyhawk

(Chorus)

E
Now he sings a little soft and he sings a little loud

and his tom-tom beats on full blue cloud.  ( Hank sings it this way)
                     (so  big and  proud) (actual lyrics)
(Chorus)

Fiddle Solo

E
He’s a Cherokee Chief as you all might know

when he sings his boogie sayin’ “Hey why-yo”
         A
Singin’ “Hey Ho-alena” (Hey Ho-alena)
         E
Singin’ “Hey Ho-alena” (Hey Ho-alena)
         B                                        E
