I've heard some variations on these lyrics, although I don't have any of them. The lyrics are relatively brief, as I recall.

From: ah827@rgfn.epcc.edu (Gene Graham)

BONEPARTE'S RETREAT
by Pee Wee King and Redd Stewart
As recorded by Pee Wee King on "Highlights from Melody Ranch, Vol. 5" (2014)

Met the girl I love in a town way down in Dixie
'Neath the stars up above-she was the sweetest girl I ever did see
[§] 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."

All the world was bright as I held her on that night
And I heard her say: "Darlin', please don't 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."

REPEAT FROM §.

A search of the database (see the blue box at the top of this page) for Bonaparte's or Bonaparte* or retreat or the phrase [BONAPARTE'S RETREAT] will give it to you. AS far as I know, the basic 2 parts of the tune are trad; Pee-Wee King added the lyrics and the C part.

It's in O'Neill's 'Music of Ireland', #1789, 'Dance Music of Ireland', #980, and the Roche Collection, II, 280. All these are available as reprints.
