Spanish cavalier

 

Verse 1

A Spanish Cavalier sat beneath the trees,
And on his guitar played a tune dear,
The music so sweet I love to repeat,
And the words I will now sing to you dear.

Chorus

O say love, say, when I am far away,
Sometimes you may think of me, dear,
A bright sunny day will soon fade away,
Believe what I say and be true dear.

Verse 2

I am off to the wars, to the wars I will go,
To fight for my country and you dear,
And if I should fall, on you I will call,
I will call on my country and you dear.

Chorus

Verse 3

When the war is all o'er back I will return,
Yes, to my country and you dear,
But if I am slain you will search for me in vain,
On the battle plain you may find me there, dear.

Chorus

Verse 4

Then say, love, say, when I am far away,
Sometimes you will think of me dear;
A bright sunny day will soon fade away,
So believe what I say and be true dear.

Chorus
