By Seth Lakeman

Tabbed by Ian Saunders
20 June 2009

4/4 time
Key of A#
Played with capo at 3rd fret in G


G                        C        D
I`ll sing you a song how first we began, 
G                                C           
Our toils and our troubles our plot and our plan. 
C, G/B, G6, Am7 (one stroke each)
Am7                             D	
We left our fair country, our friends and our homes, 
C, G/B, G6, Am7
Am7 (hammer on D strings).....D	
Across to the deserts wild and the mountains to roll. 

We travelled three weeks `til we came to the platt. 
Set up our camp ahead of the pack, 
In just a moment low we heard a faint yell, 
Five hundred cavalry they were riding from hell. 


G     C       D  Em7
We fight for favour, 
G       C         D
we will fight for pride, 
G           C       D     Em7
And oh we will fight for favour, 
C              D (hammer on G string)
We will fight `til they die. 

They made a bold dash came near to our train, 
Bullets fell around like showers of rain, 
With long rifles at hand we fed them hot lead 
`Til many a brave warrior around us lay dead, 


We travel by day but guard in the night, 
Across all those mountains so high in their might, 
Now in a green valley we live beside a clear old stream, 
Our journey now ended in the land of our dreams,
