The Battle of the Bridge at Endercross (Dan Schatz) "To the river we must go!" cried the champion at arms "Warriors take your swords and wizards take your charms There awaits on the fields of the shire an army fierce and cruel And to them we will prove this day that the force of good does rule" "Drink a health to the queen and regent and swiftly we must ride For the army of North Aventol waits by the riverside And we must stike when the time is right or the battle will be lost And so we will take haste to fight at the Bridge at Endercross" So heed the call you loyal sons and run to battle everyone WeUll fight for Queen Utill all are lost At the Battle of the Bridge at Endercross The army it set forth under a sky both dark and gray They rode till they came to the river and they turned the Northern way "Take caution now and silence, all!" the champion did say "For we must surprise the Aventol if we're to take the day" Then from ahead there came the sound of soldiers in the field "It's onward then!" the champion cried and he he raised his magic shield And there they met the Aventol and there the swords did cross And the blood, it flowed quite freely Uneath the Bridge at Endercross So heed the call you loyal sons and run to battle everyone WeUll fight for Queen Utill all are lost At the Battle of the Bridge at Endercross The armies fought from noon to night and the dead lay where they fell For there were none to bury them. It seemed the rage of Hell And few did live to tell the tale of the Aventol's demise It seemed a victory cruel and hard for the ones that did survive And so, my friends, when daylight came the warriors crawled away The bodies were too many, so they left them where they lay The battle it was won that day but the soldiers, they were lost And the ghosts do struggle to this date by the Bridge at Endercross They heard the call, the loyal sons, and ran to battle every one They fought for Queen Utill all were lost At the Battle of the Bridge at Endercross (repeat) Copyright 1992 by Dan Schatz, 36-String Music DS
