Wikipedia has an article on
Bonaparte's Retreat
Met the girl that I love,
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,
An' 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: "Don't you ever go away."

So I held her in my arms and,
Told her of her many charms,
An' I kissed her while the guitars played,
The Bonaparte's Retreat.

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 and,
Told her of her many charms,
An' I kissed her while the guitars played,
The Bonaparte's Retreat.

Instrumental close.
