Here’s fourteen shillings on the drum

For those who’ll volunteer to come

To list and fight the foe today

Over the hills and far away

[Chorus]

O’er the hills and o’er the main

Through forest, mountain, hill and plain

The Rose commands and we obey

Over the hills and far away

Now Charge in lads with swords held high

With rose banners that reach the sky

So forward now into the fray

Over the hills and far away

[Chorus]

So fall in lads behind the drum

With Colors blazing like the sun

Along the road to come-what-may

Over the hills and far away

[Chorus]

Our captains lead us on our path

To battlefields that show our wrath

Our courage never goes astray

Over the hills and far away

[Chorus]

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

[Chorus]

Through smoke and fire and shot and shell

Unto the very walls of hell

We shall stand and we shall stay

Over the hills and far away

[Chorus]

And as the smoke lifts and silence falls

The soldiers stand and yell their calls

And in the end Victory! we’ll say

Over the hills and far away

[Chorus]

When evil stalks upon the land

I’ll neither hold nor stay me’ hand

But fight to win a better day

Over the hills and far away

[Chorus]

Let Kings and tyrants come and go

I’ll stand adjudged by what I know

A soldier’s life I’ll ne’er gainsay

Over the hills and far away

[Chorus]
