Kate Rusby - Bonnie Light Horseman

rate me

When Boney commanded his troops for to stand

And He planted his cannons all over the land

And he planted his cannon the whole victory for to gain

And they killed my light horseman returning from Spain

Broken-hearted I will wander for the loss of my lover;

He is my bonnie light horseman, in the wars he was slain.

If you saw my love on sentry on a cold winter's night

With his rosy red cheeks and his flowing brown hair

All mounted on horseback the whole victory for to gain

And tis on the battle-field he'd honours to gain

Oh, if I were a blackbird and had wings to fly

I would fly to the spot where my true love does lie

And with my little fluttering wings his wounds I would


And 'tis all the night long on his breast I would lie

Oh Boney, oh Boney I have caused you no harm

Tell me why, tell me why have you caused me this alarm

We were happy together, my true love and me

Oh but now you have stretched him in death over the sea
