Bonnie Light Horseman
Traditional

Chorus:

Oh Napoleon Bonaparte, you’re the cause of my woe
Since my bonny light horseman to the wars he did go
Broken hearted I wander, broken hearted I remain
Since my bonny light horseman, in the wars he was slain

When Bonica landed, his armies to stand
And proud waved his banners, all gaily and grand
He levelled his cannons, right over the plains
And my bonny light horseman, in the wars he was slain

Chorus

And if I was some small bird, and had wings and could fly
I would fly o’er the salt sea, where my true love does lie
Three years and six months now, since he left this bright shore
Oh my bonny light horseman, will I n’er see you more

Chorus

At the dock she laments for, her mate e’re she flies
“Oh where tell me where, is my true love,” she sighs
“And where in this wide world, is there one to compare
With my bonny light horseman, who was killed in the war”
