Over the Hills and Far Away (Ohio, 4) On fair Ohio's banks we stand, Musket and bayonet in hand The French are beat, they dare not stay But take to their heels and run away. cho: Whoe'er is bold, whoe'er is free Will join and come along with me We'll drive the French without delay Over the hills and far away. Over the rocks and over the steep Over the waters, wide and deep We'll drive the French without delay Over the hills and far away. Another version of The Wind it Blew my Plaid Awa' From the French and Indian War; I heard this fragment sung (parenthetically) by Burl Ives in the late 40's. Anybody know any more? RG RG
