W:When Boney commanded his army to stand,
W:He levelled his cannons right over the land
W:He levelled his cannons his victory to gain
W:And slew my light horseman on the way coming home.
W:
W:Chorus:
W:Broken-hearted I'll wander, broken-hearted I'll remain
W:Since my bonny light horseman in the wars he was slain.
W:
W:And if I was a small bird and had wings to fly
W:I would fly o'er the salt seas to where my love does lie.
W:And with my fond wings I'd beat over his grave,
W:And I'd kiss the pale lips that lie cold in the clay.
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:Now the dove she laments for her mate as she flies.
W:"Oh, where, tell me where, is my true love?", she cries.
W:And where in this wide world is there one to compare
W:With my bonny light horseman who was slain in the war.
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:When Boney commanded his army to stand,
W:He levelled his cannons right over the land
W:He levelled his cannons his victory to gain
W:And slew my light horseman on the way coming home.
W:
W:Chorus
