The Hollies: “Indian Girl” (1972)

While this song’s lyric wouldn’t pass the political correctness test today, its story of a young man and the Indian maiden he wishes to marry hits on a familiar pop music theme: young, determined love. The suitor in this case can’t afford the ten hides and twenty horses that tribal law has set as the price for marrying the girl he loves, so he’s asking her to run off with him instead.

“Indian Girl” was the non-LP B-side to the Hollies’ 1972 “Magic Woman Touch” single.
