The Female volunteer for Mexico

Lyrics

Oh! I had a beau,
Who for Mexico would go
Do you think I’d say no, no, no, not I
When his rifle I saw
Not a sigh would I draw
But give him eclat for his bravery
If a band of young patriots should come in my way
As a volunteer for Mexico I’d march away
A volunteer for Mexico I’d march away
March away, march away, march away, march away
March away, march away, march away, march away, march away

When the field I am on
Do you think I would mourn
Or wish to return, no no, not I
With freedom I’d burn
All fear would I scorn
Till Mexico was crowned with liberty
If a band of young patriots should come in my way

As a volunteer for Mexico I’d march away
A volunteer for Mexico I’d march away
March away, march away, march away, march away
March away, march away, march away, march away, march away

Then arouse man and maid
Fair Mexico to aid
Grasp rifle and blade and never fly
Till freedom again
Shall smile on her plain
Your life’s blood drained for victory
If a band of young patriots should come in my way
As a volunteer for Mexico I’d march away
A volunteer for Mexico I’d march away
March away, march away, march away, march away
March away, march away, march away, march away, march away
