If you saw my love on sentry on a cold winter’s day
With his rosy red cheeks and his flowing brown hair
All mounted on horseback the whole victory for to gain
And ’tis on the battlefield great honours to gain.

Chorus

Oh! If I were a blackbird and had wings to fly
I would fly to the spot where my true love he does lie
And with my little fluttering wings his wounds I would heal
And ’tis all the night long on his breast I would lie.

Chorus

Oh Boney! Oh Boney! I have caused you no harm
Tell me why, tell me why have you caused me such alarm?
We were happy together my true love and me
Oh! But now you have stretched him in death over the sea.
