​Goodbye, From The White Horse Inn

This song is by Josef Locke.

My heart is broken but what care I?
Such pride inside me has woken
I'll try my best not to cry
By and by

When the final farewells must be spoken
I'll join the Legion, that's what I'll do
And in some far distant region
Where human hearts are staunch and true
I shall start my life anew

Good-bye, it's time
I sought a foreign clime
Where I may find
There are hearts more kind
Than I leave behind and so, I go
To fight a savage foe

Although I know that
I'll be sometimes missed by the girls I've kissed
In some Abyssinian French Dominion
I shall do my bit and fall for the flag if I must
Where the desert sand is nice and handy
I'll be full of grit

You won't see my heels for the dust
I'll do or die
You'll know the reason why
When told of bold Leopold's last stand
For the Fatherland

Good-bye, it's time
I sought a foreign clime
Where I may find
There are hearts more kind
Than I leave behind and so, I go
To fight a savage foe

Although I know that
I'll be sometimes missed by the girls I've kissed
In some Abyssinian French Dominion
I shall do my bit and fall for the flag if I must
Where the desert sand is nice and handy
I'll be full of grit

You won't see my heels for the dust
I'll do or die
You'll know the reason why
When told of bold Leopold's last stand
For the Fatherland

Good-bye, good-bye
I wish you all a last good-bye
Good-bye, good-bye
I wish you all a last good-bye
