Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Over the Hills and Far Away
To add to the pre-Napoleonic case, there is a verse from the time of the death of the Duke of Marlborough which runs (roughly).

Come Grenadiers, now change your song
And sing no more of battles won,
No victories shall grace us now
Since we have lost our Marlborough...
