Bass intro B Deep in the castle and back from the war Back with milady and the fires burnt tall Hurrah went the men down below All outside was the rain and snow E Hear their shouts, hear their roars B They've probably had a barrel, and much, much more F Hurrah, Hurrah, Hurrah, Yea B Over the hills came the swords of a. thousand men. B We had to meet the enemy a mile away Thunder in the air and the sky turned grey Assembling the knights and their swords were sharp There was hope in our English hearts E Hear our roar, hear our sound B We're gonna fight until we have won this town F Hurrah, Hurr.
