Met the man I love In a town way down in Dixie `Neath the stars above He was the sweetest man you ever did see When he held me in his arms and Told me of my many charms he Kissed me while the fiddles played The Bonaparte's Retreat All the world was bright When he held me on that night And I heard him say Please don't ever go away When he held me in his arms and Told me of my many charms he Kissed me while the fiddles played The Bonaparte's Retreat (Musical Interlude) When he held me in his arms and Told me of my many charms he Kissed me while the fiddles played The Bonaparte's Retreat All the world was bright When he held me on that night And I heard him say Please don't 'cha go away He's gone, and I'll admit I knew that I had met my Waterloo I Knew that he would say "Adieu" With Bonaparte's Retreat Goodbye little boy Goodbye little joy Goodbye little boy So long little joy Goodbye little (fade out) (Transcribed by Bill Huntley - May 2006)
