Bonaparte's Retreat


written by Pee Wee King and Redd Stewart


Sung By Mike Nesmith



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"

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"
