Henrik Norbeck's Song Lyrics

Bonny Light Horseman, The

(Broken-Hearted I'll Wander)
Sheet Music (and more information about this song)

When Boney commanded his army to stand,
He levelled his cannons right over the land
He levelled his cannons his victory to gain
And slew my light horseman on the way coming home.

Chorus:
Broken-hearted I'll wander, broken-hearted I'll remain
Since my bonny light horseman in the wars he was slain.

And if I was a small bird and had wings to fly
I would fly o'er the salt seas to where my love does lie.
And with my fond wings I'd beat over his grave,
And I'd kiss the pale lips that lie cold in the clay.

Chorus

Now the dove she laments for her mate as she flies.
"Oh, where, tell me where, is my true love?", she cries.
And where in this wide world is there one to compare
With my bonny light horseman who was slain in the war.

Chorus

When Boney commanded his army to stand,
He levelled his cannons right over the land
He levelled his cannons his victory to gain
And slew my light horseman on the way coming home.

Chorus
