War Like Lads Of Russia

Asonance



   D             G    A     
1. When Napoleon Bonaparte
   D   A     D     
to Moscow he went
     G                  D            
with all his troops and all his men
      G                A     
their minds were fully bent
   D                G    A   
to take the Russian country
     D       A     D      
they were fully employed
        G               D             
but the Russians fought against them
         F        G        C     
and they soon did them destroy.
2. Well in a little while
the Russians did attack
’gainst Bonaparte and all his men
they fought them and they drove them back
the action being so hot
right and left and front and rear
a damn you all says Bonaparte
I’ll stay no longer here.
         D                G     A                             
R: Those war like lads of Russia they fought all in one mind
     G            D                 G        A     
made Bonaparte to run and leave his troops behind
      D                G      A                            
those war like lads of Russia they fought all in one mind
     G            D                 A        D      
made Bonaparte to run and leave his troops behind.
3. Away then went poor Bonaparte
as fast as he could run
the poor Frenchmen looked after him
left horses men and guns
his boxes and his matches
ammunition wagons too
he left them all behind him well
what could poor Boney do?
R:
4. Away then went poor Bonaparte
as fast as he could ride
the poor Frenchmen looked after him
saying oh it’s very hard
to think he’d lead us all up here
and leave us to our fate
you’d think he’d stop along with us
and help us in our state.
R:
5. Here’s eighty thousand men from ’em
they’ve killed and they have taken
likewise ten thousand horses
and two hundred bits of cannon
never more to Leon Paris
or French Flanders they’re advanced
for if I do I may be sure
they’ll teach me how to dance.
R:
6. Now it’s to conclude and thus
to finish off me song
old Boney’s men and Russia wish
they had a hold of him
the cruellest death they’d put him to
that ever a man befell
oh damn you all says Bonaparte
I’m clear of you all.
R:
