Thread Name: Lyr Req: Over the Hills and Far Away
Subject: Lyr Add: OVER THE HILLS AND FAR AWAY (John Tams)
Here's the full John Tams version from 'Sharpe'

Over the hills and far away.

Here's forty shillings on the drum.
To those who'll volunteer to come.
To list and fight the foe today.
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 obey.
Over the hills and far away.


When duty calls me I must go
To stand and face another foe
But a part of me will always stray
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 obey.
Over the hills and far away.

If I should fall to rise no more.
As many comrades have before.
Then ask the pipes and drums to play.
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 obey.
Over the hills and far away.

Fall in lads behind the drum
With colours blazing like the sun
Along the road to come what may
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 obey.
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 obey.
Over the hills and far away.
