By popular request, below are the lyrics to 'Over The Hills And Far Away',

as sung by John Tams at the end of each film...

 

Over The Hills And Far Away

 

Here's forty shillings on the drum for those who volunteer to come

To 'list and fight the foe today - Over the hills and far away

 

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

 

O'er the hills..........etc

 

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

 

O'er the hills..........etc

 

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

 

O'er the hills..........etc.
