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

Join today

[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 [Chorus]

If I should fall to rise no more As many comrades did before Then ask the pipes and drums to play Over the hills and far away [Chorus]

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 [Chorus] X4
