I have heard the cannons thundering at night
And I cannot help but wondering why the rebel's cause is right
And the morphine seems to do no good at all
I would run all the way if I would not fall.

Bridge:
And I dreamed of a rose in a Spanish garden
And I kissed you as I placed it in your hair
If I'm ever on my feet again I will
I will run all the way just to meet you there

Joined the southern cavalry for fun
I have rode a thousand horses, always I had a way with a gun
Now I'm among the horseless riders lying still
Swallowed up by the cause on Widow's Hill

Bridge:
And I dreamed of a rose in a Spanish garden
And I kissed you as I placed it in your hair
If I'm ever on my feet again I will
And I will run all the way just to meet you there

Bridge:
And I dreamed of a rose in a Spanish garden
And I kissed you as I placed it in your hair
If I'm ever on my feet again I will
And I will run all the way just to meet you there
