Bonaparte's Retreat
by Glen Campbell



Met the girl I I love in a town way down in Dixie
Beneath the stars up above
She was the sweetest girl I ever did see

So I held her in my arms and told her of her many charms, I
Kissed her while the guitars played
The Bonaparte's Retreat
Guitar

All the world was bright as I held her on that night
And I heard her-er say
Please don't you go away

So I held her in my arms and told her of her many charms, I
Kissed her while the bagpipe played
The Bonaparte's Retreat
Bagpipe

Well I met the girl I I love in a town way down in Dixie
Beneath the stars up above
She was the sweetest girl I ever did see

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
Fiddle

All the world wa-as bright as I held her on that night
And I heard her-er say
Please don't you go away

So I held her in my arms and told her of her many charms, I
Kissed her while everybody played
The Bonaparte's Retreat
Everybody

Yes I held her in my arms and told her of her many charms, I
Kissed her while everybody's playin'
The Bonaparte's Retreat

Yes I held her in my arms, I told her of her many charms, and I
Kissed her while everybody's playin'
