Cherokee Tresses Laced In Blue (Larry W. Jones 01/02/2007) (song#4287)

Way over in an Oklahoma mesa
Where antelope and yearlings play
There I used to ride my pony
Side by side with a Cherokee maid

She was fairer than the fairest
Maiden that Oklahoma ever knew
And adorned beneath her headress
Cherokee tresses laced in blue

Call of the trail meant we'd be parted
Before the Winter winds had blown
It seemed our love had barely started
And such love as I had never known

A Cherokee maiden was my treasure
Her love was kind and oh, so true
Only dreams now bring me pleasure
Of Cherokee tresses laced in blue
