Kitty Wells — Bonaparte's Retreat lyrics

Met the one I loved in a town way down in Dixie
Neath the stars above he was the sweetest man I ever did see
So he took me in his arms and told me of my many charms
He kissed me while the fiddle played the Bonaparte's Retreat.

All the world was bright as he held my hand that night
And I heard him say please don't ever go away
So he held me in his arms and told me of my many charms
He kissed me while the fiddle played the Bonaparte's Retreat.

All the world was bright as he held my hand that night
And I heard him say please don't ever go away
So he held me in his arms and told me of my many charms
He kissed me while the fiddle played the Bonaparte's Retreat...
