Thread Name: Lyr/Chords Req: Spanish Cavalier (Hendrickson)
Subject: Lyr Add: A SPANISH CAVALIER
Found it!

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

CHORUS: Oh, say, darling, say, when I am 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 would I call
The blessing of my country and you, dear.

And when the war is o'er, to you I'll return
Again to my country and you, dear;
But if I be slain, you may seek me in vain;
Upon the battlefield you will find me.
