Hank Locklin – Bonaparte's Retreat lyrics

Met a girl I loved 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
And kissed her while the organ played the Bonaparte's Retreat
[ organ ]
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...
[ organ ]
So I held her in my arms...
So I held her in my arms...
