MUSIC OF SHARPE OVER THE HILLS AND FAR AWAY LYRICS

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.
From Sharpe's Eagle & Sharpe's Mission:

There's forty shillings on the drum
To those who volunteer to come,
To 'list and fight the foe today
Over the Hills and far away.
From Sharpe's Company:

Mid smoke and fire and shot and shell,
And to the very walls of hell,
But we shall stand and we shall stay
Over the hills and far away
From Sharpe's Enemy:

Though I may travel far from Spain
A part of me shall still remain,
And you are with me night and day
Over the hills and far away.
From Sharpe's Honour & Sharpe's Siege:

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.
From Sharpe's Gold:

When Evil stalks upon the land
I'll neither hold nor stay me hand
But fight to win a better day,
Over the hills and far away.
From Sharpe's Battle:

If I should fall to rise no more,
As many comrades did before,
Ask the pipes and drums to play
Over the hills and far away.
From Sharpe's Sword:

Let kings and tyrants come and go,
I'll stand adjudged by what I know.
A soldiers life I'll ne'er gainsay.
Over the hills and far away.
From Sharpe's Challenge:

Though kings and tyrants come and go
A soldier's life is all I know
I'll live to fight another day
Over the hills and far away.
No version of the song accompanies Sharpe's Rifles, Regiment, Revenge and Justice. A tongue-in-cheek verse appears in Sharpe's Waterloo:

Old Wellington, he scratched his bum.
He says, "Bony lad, thee's had thee fun."
My riflemen will win the day
Over the hills and far away.
