“Bonaparte’s Retreat” Lyrics

I 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

Then I held her in my arms
And told her of her many charms
And I kissed her while the fiddles played
“Bonaparte’s Retreat”

It was on that night
That I held her oh so tight
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
And I kissed her while the fiddles played
“Bonaparte’s Retreat”

[break]

So I held her in my arms
And told her of her many charms
And I kissed her while the fiddles played
“Bonaparte’s Retreat”
