Lyrics to an old country song “Elijah”? about a wooden Indian?

“Poor ole (or oak?) Elijah, ain’t never had a kiss,

It’s Kaw-liga by Hank Sr.
Kaw- [dm] liga, was a wooden indian standing by the door
He fell in love with an indian maid over in the antique store
Kaw-liga – a, just stood there and never let it [a7] show
So she could never answer yes or [dm] no.

He always wore his sunday feathers and held a tomahawk
The maiden wore her beads and braids and hoped someday hed talk
Kaw-liga – a, too stubborn to ever show a sign
Because his heart was made of knotty pine.

Chorus
[d] poor ol kaw-liga, he never got a kiss
[g] poor ol kaw-liga, he dont know what he missed
[d] is it any wonder that his face is [a7] red
Kaw-liga, that poor ol wooden [d] head. … [dm]

Kaw-liga, was a lonely indian never went nowhere
His heart was set on the indian maiden with the coal black hair
Kaw-liga – a, just stood there and never let it show
So she could never answer yes or no.

Then one day a wealthy customer bought the indian maid
And took her, oh, so far away, but ol kaw-liga stayed
Kaw-liga – a, just stands there as lonely as can be
And wishes he was still an old pine tree.

Chorus

I think most people miss the point because things are in reverse order. He gets away (not unscathed) to kill more. However the point is that before this Tommy Lee Jones (the sheriff) gives up and rationalizes his way out of the mess. That is where the movie gets it’s name “No Country for Old Men” (Jones).
