Over the Hills and Far Away (2) Hark now the drums beat up again For all true soldier gentlemen So let us list and march I say And go over the hills and far away Cho: Over the hills, and o'er the main To Flanders, Portugal and Spain Queen Anne commands and we'll obey And go over the hills and far away There's twenty shillings on the drvm For him that with us freely comes 'Tis volunteers shall win the day Over the hills and far away Come gentlemen that have a mind To serve a queen that's good and kind Come list and enter in to pay And go over the hills and far away And we shall live more happy lives Free of squalling brats and wives Who nag and vex us every day So its over the hills and far away Prentice Tom may well refuse To wipe his angry master's shoes For now he's free to run and play Over the hills and far away No more from sound of drum retreat When Marlborough and Galway beat The French and Spaniards every day Over the hills and far away. from Songs and Music of the Redcoats (?)
