The Light Dragoon

The Light Dragoon

The Light Dragoon came over the hill,
The moon was shining clearly,
There was a young woman, sure she new him by his horse,
Because she loved him dearly.

     Dearly, so dearly
     There was a young woman, sure she knew him by his horse
     Because she loved him dearly

She took him by the bridle and,
She led him to the stable,
Here's hay and oats for your horse young man,
Let him eat while he is able.

     Able so able
     Here's hay and oats for your horse young man
     Let him eat while he is able

She took him in her own white hand,
And led him to the table,
Here's cakes and wine for you my love,
Eat and drink while you are able.

     Able so able
     Here's cakes and wine for you my love
     Eat and drink while you are able

She ran upstairs to make the bed,
To make it soft and easy,
How nimbly she jumped into the bad,
To see if it lay easy.

     Easy, so easy
     How nimbly she jumped into the bad
     To see if it lay easy

The Light Dragoon he ran upstairs,
Put off his army trousers,
How nimble he jumped into the bed,
To see if it lay easy.

     Easy, so easy
     How nimbly he jumped into the bad
     To see if it lay easy

Oh there they lay 'til the cock did crow,
And the trumpets they were sounding,
With her spirits high and her belly low,
She ran home to her mammy.

     Mammy, her mammy
     With her spirits high and her belly low
     She ran home to her mammy

Now where have you been all this long night,
Inquired her anxious parents,
Oh I've been along of the Light Dragoon,
Because I love him dearly.

     Dearly, so dearly
     Oh I've been along of the Light Dragoon
     Because I love him dearly
