BEAUMONT’S LIGHT HORSE

BEAUMONT’S LIGHT HORSE
(J.Lowe / Lowe Life Music)

Oh we marched from our camps with our hearts full of woe
On board of the transports we were forced for to go
No drums they did beat and no trumpets did sound
In sorrow and sadness we trudged o’er the ground.

No more on our horses we will ride o’er the plain
for they’d drive us away like sheep to be slain
Our friends and acquaintants we’d leave ‘pon the shore
And we may not now ever see old England no more.

We listed for horsemen, our country to save
And they told us fine stories of the bold man so brave
But now he has sold us to add to his store
And we may not now ever see old England no more.

When armed on our horses we would ride o’er the plain
All ran to see Beaument’s light horsemen parade
But now all these fine times are with us no more
And we may not now ever see old England no more.

Farewell to our wives and our sweethearts likewise
Though we’re driven to battle its bondage we despise
And if it’s our fortune to return once again
We will bring store and riches, bid adieu to the main.
