Click Play Speed Slow 1/4=100 Medium 1/4=150 Fast 1/4=200

A popular old time tune, one of the "Bonaparte trio" made up of this tune plus Bonaparte Crossing the Rhine, and Bonaparte Crossing the Rocky mountains. (These will be on a later volume.)
Met the girl I love
In a town 'way down in Dixie
'Neath the stars above
She was the sweetest thing I ever did see.

So I took her in my arms
And told her of her many charms
I kissed her while the fiddles played
The Bonaparte's Retreat.
All the world was bright
As I held her on that night
And I heard her say
"Please don't ever go away."

So I held her in my arms
And told her of her many charms
I kissed her while the fiddles played
The Bonaparte's Retreat.
