Three Cavaliers Bid Farewell. This is my ukulele version of a German folk song from 1777 that seems to possess so many different lyrics on the web, but I finally settled on a few with help from the 1st German Ukulele Club. This song is about three horsemen (possibly knights) leaving one's love behind at the city's gates.

Ade = adieu. I didn't do an English translation this time. Too tricky. I filmed the outdoor scene at the Billings Estate, Ottawa on April 30, 2011. It's a peaceful place, literally in my backyard. This was fun to do.

Free sheet music/TABs coming soon!
