As sung on the Over the Hills and Far Away: The Music of Sharpe CD by John Tams


Here's forty 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 Flanders, Portugal and Spain.

King George commands and we obey.

Over the hills and far away.


When duty calls me I must go

To stand and face another foe.

But part of me will always stray

Over the hills and far away.


If I should fall to rise no more,

As many comrades did before,

Then ask the fifes and drums to play.

Over the hills and far away.


Then fall in lads behind the drum,

With colours blazing like the sun.

Along the road to come-what may.

Over the hills and far away.


(Traditional - additional lyrics by John Tams)
