Jim Dixon Lyr Req: The Spanish Cavalier (16) Lyr Add: THE SPANISH CAVALIER (W. D. Hendrickson) 18 Mar 20


From the sheet music at the Library of Congress:


THE SPANISH CAVALIER
William D. Hendrickson, ©1881.

1. A Spanish cavalier stood in his retreat
And on his guitar he play'd a tune, dear.
The music so sweet, they'd oft-times repeat
The blessing of my country and you, dear.

CHORUS: Say, darling, say, when I'm far away,
Sometimes you may think of me, dear.
Bright sunny days will soon fade away.
Remember what I say and be true, dear.

2. I'm off to the war; to the war I must go,
To fight for my country and you, dear,
But if I should fall, in vain I would call
The blessing of my country and you, dear.

3. When the war is o'er, to you I'll return,
Back to my country and you, dear,
But if I be slain, you may seek me in vain.
Upon the battlefield you will find me.
