Falling Rock

I knew an Indian named Kollit
he was chief of the Whatchama tribe
they called him Chief Whatchamakollit
until the day he died

He had a boy he named Falling Rock
'cuz that’s the first thing he saw
when he looked out from his great big tent
after his squaw made him a paw

That Indian boy was a wanderer
he got lost all of the time
Kollit made him post his name where he'd been
so he would be easy to find

Now little Falling Rock traveled a lot
you ask me how I know
it's cuz I see his name posted
most every where I go

So if you see a sign that says Falling Rock
then you know where he's been
then if you can some how tell Chief Whatchamakollit
you'll have an Indian ghost for a friend

I'm not going to tell you how
I'm not up on Indian lore
but I've been told you just holler out
FALLING ROCK
then wait and try to see more
