Met a girl that I loved
In a town way down in Texas
'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
And I kissed her
While the fiddles played
The 'Bonaparte's Retreat'
And all the world was bright
As I held her on that night
And I heard her say
Don't you ever go away
So I held her in my arms
