Bonaparte’s Retreat

print

Met the girl I love in a town way down in Dixie
‘Neath the stars above she was the sweetest girl I ever did see
So I took her in my arms and told her of her many charms
I kissed her while the fiddles played the Bonaparte’s Retreat

   All the world was bright as I held her on that night
   And I heard her say Please don’t ever go away
   So I held her in my arms and told her of her many charms
   I kissed her while the fiddles played the Bonaparte’s Retreat
