Graham Pirt Origins: Bonny / Bonnie Light Horseman (11) Lyr Add: BONNY LIGHT HORSEMAN 15 May 99

Great song and a tremendous tune.


When Boney commanded his armies to stand
He levelled his cannons right over the land;
He levelled his cannons his victory to gain
And my bonny light horseman in the war he was slain

Broken hearted I'll wander, broken hearted I'll remain
Since my Bonny light horseman in the wars he was slain

If I was a small bird and had wings to fly
I would fly o'er the salt sea where my love does lie
And with my fond wings I'd beat o'er his grave
And kiss the pale lips that lie cold in the grave

The dove she laments for her mate as she flies
"Oh where, tell me where is my darling?" she cries
And where in the world is there one to compare
To my bonny light horseman who was slain in the war
