Lyrics

A Spanish cavalier stood in his retreat
And on his guitar played a tune, dear
The music so sweet they would oft times repeat
The blessings of my country and you, dear

Say darling, say when I'm far away
Sometimes you may think of me, dear
Bright sunny days will soon fade away
Remember what I say and be true, dear

I'm off to the war, to the war I must go
To fight for my country and you, dear
But if I should fall in vain I would call
The blessings of my country and you, dear

Say darling, say when I'm far away
Sometimes you may think of me, dear
Bright sunny days will soon fade away
Remember what I say and be true, dear

When the war is over to you I'll return
Back to my country and you, dear
But if I am slain you may seek me in vain
Upon the battlefield you will find me

Say darling, say when I'm far away
Sometimes you may think of me, dear
Bright sunny days will soon fade away
Remember what I say and be true, dear
