[Chorus]
G                                 C              Em
I wanna be in the cavalry if they send me off to war
C                  G                              D
I wanna good steed under me like my forefathers before
G                                              C                 Em
I wanna good mount when the bugle sounds and I hear the cannons' roar
C                 G                        D      G
I wanna be in the cavalry if they send me off to war


[Verse 1]
G                                                C                Em
well,I wanna horse in the volunteer force that's riding forth at dawn
C                       G                                  D   
Please save for me some gallantry that will echo when I'm gone
G                                   C                                Em
I beg of you sarge let me lead the charge when the battle lines are drawn
C                      G                                D        G
Lemme at least leave a good hoof beat they'll remember loud and long


[Verse 2]
G                                        C                  Em 
I’m not a good foot soldier mate, I'd be sour and slow at march
C                     G                                     D
And I'd be sick on a navy ship, and the sea would leave me parched
G                                                    C                    Em
But I'll be first in line if they'll let me ride, by god, you'll see my starch
C                                  G                              D      G
Lope back o'er the heath with the laurel wreath underneath that vict’ry arch


[Chorus]
G                                 C              Em
I wanna be in the cavalry if they send me off to war
C                  G                              D
I wanna good steed under me like my forefathers before
G                                              C                 Em
I wanna good mount when the bugle sounds and I hear the cannons' roar
C                 G                        D      G
I wanna be in the cavalry if they send me off to war


[Verse 3]
G                                                    C             Em
Let me earn my spurs in the battle's blur where the day is lost or won
C                           G                                           D
I'll wield my lance as the ponies dance and the blackguards fire their guns
G                                         C           Em
A sabre keen, and a saddle carbine and an army Remington
C                                   G                            D       C
Where the hot lead screams with the cold, cold steel let me be a cav’lryman


[Chorus]
G                                 C              Em
I wanna be in the cavalry if they send me off to war
C                  G                              D
I wanna good steed under me like my forefathers before
G                                              C                 Em
I wanna good mount when the bugle sounds and I hear the cannons' roar
C                 G                    D      G
I wanna be in the cavalry if I must go off to war


[Verse 4]
G                                                  C                    Em
Let 'em play their flutes and stirrup my boots and place them back to front
C                             G                                       D
Cause I won’t be back on the rider-less black and I'm finished in my hunt
G                                  C              D
I wanna be in the cavalry if they send me off to war
C                  G                         D       G
I wanna be in the cavalry, but I won't ride home no more

                 ......................

I hope you enjoyed this great tune from the "Hurtin' Albertan"
