Saw You My Hero George

Saw you my hero, saw you my hero,
Saw you my hero, George?
I've ranged thro'all the plain and I've ask'd of every swain
For some news of my hero, George.

I saw not your hero, I saw not your hero,
I saw not your hero, George.
Your hero's in the van of the battle just began,
And I to my men must away.

Hark, from the hills, the woodlands, and dales,
The drums and the trumpet alarms.
Ye Gods, I give you charge of gallant hero, George
To return him unhurt to my arms.

From Songs From the American Revolution, Keller
Collected from the notebooks of Captain George Bush (no relation)
