    Lyrics

    Burl Ives - The Bold Soldier

    Soldier, oh soldier,
    A-coming from the plain
    He courted a lady for honor and for fame
    Her beauty shone so bright
    That it never could be told
    She always loved the soldier
    Because he was so bold.
    Fa la la la, fa la la la
    Fa la la la, fa la la la

    Soldier, oh soldier,
    It's I would be your bride,
    But I fear of my father
    Some danger might betide.
    Then he pulled out sword and pistol
    And hung them by his side
    Swore he would be married,
    No matter what betide.
    Fa la la la, fa la la la
    Fa la la la, fa la la la

    Then he took her to the parson,
    And, of course, home again
    There they met her father
    And seven armed men.
    Let us fly, said the lady,
    I fear we shall be slain
    Take my hand, said the soldier,
    And never fear again.
    Fa la la la, fa la la la
    Fa la la la, fa la la la

    Then he pulled out sword and pistol,
    And caused them to rattle,
    The lady held the horse
    While the soldier fought in battle.
    Hold your hand, said the old man,
    Do not be so bold.
    You shall have my daughter
    And a thousand pounds of gold.
    Fa la la la, fa la la la
    Fa la la la, fa la la la

    Fight on! said the lady,
    The portion is too small!
    Hold your hand, said the old man,
    And you shall have it all.
    Then he took them right straight home
    And he called them son and dear
    Not because he loved them,
    But only through fear.
    Fa la la la, fa la la la
    Fa la la la, fa la la la
