Words and Music by W. T. Francis

What a splendid sight when the sun shines bright,
Out on the king's highway,
To see my brave knight in his manly might,
Rein steed on the king's highway,
Rein steed on the king's highway I
A battle is won, great deeds have been done,
And my knight and his steed need rest;
So homeward he turns while the great sun burns,
Dimly far out in the West,
Dimly far out in the West.
Merrily, cheerily, madly on, his horse's hoofs are sounding;
His heart is light and swift his flight, for he is homeward bounding.
His eyes flash fire, for like his sire, a brave and true knight is he;
A fair young face, a mien of grace, I love him and he loves me.

What a splendid sight when the stars shine bright,
Outside the king's highway,
To see my brave knight, he's only a mite,
His nurs'ry's the king's highway,
His nurs'ry's the king's highway I
Dismount from his steed, which ne'er needs a feed,
A hobby horse, all dapple gray,
And, safe in my arms from war's wild alarms,
Rests till the dawning or day,
Rests till the dawning of day.
Merrily, cheerily, madly on, etc.
