Over the Hills and Far Away by ChrisRawlins Over the Hills and Far Away by ChrisRawlins
O'er the hills and o'er the main
Through Flanders, Portugal and Spain.
King George commands and we obey
Over the hills and far away.

It's forty shillings on the drum
To those who volunteer to come,
To 'list and fight the foe today
Over the Hills and far away.

Through smoke and fire and shot and shell,
And to the very walls of hell,
But we shall stand and we shall stay
Over the hills and far away

If I should fall to rise no more,
As many comrades did before,
Ask the pipes and drums to play
Over the hills and far away.

though i may travel far from spain
part of me shall still remain
for you're with me night and day
and over the hills and far away.

o'er the hills and o'er the main
through Flanders, Portugal and Spain
King George commands, and we'll obey
Over the hills and far away.
