To War for The West

Colin MacLear
June Crown, June, AS XXXV (2000)
Performed at Stepping up as Bard of the West

Will you go to war?
Will you fight as one?
Will you honor the Crown of the West?

The ship of the warrior is yet to sail

Will you go to war?
Will you fight as one?
Will you honor the Crown of the West?

A tale we'll bring of a fallen king
The ship of the warrior is yet to sail

Will you go to war?
Will you fight as one?
Will you honor the Crown of the West?

At cannon's blast we'll break their line
And a tale we'll bring of a fallen king
The ship of the warrior is yet to sail

Will we go to war?
Will we fight as one?
Will we honor the Crown of the West?

At the castle siege we'll lay them low
At cannon's blast we'll break their line
And a tale we'll bring of a fallen king
The ship of the warrior is yet to sail

Will we go to war?
Will we fight as one?
Will we honor the Crown of the West?

At battle's end our banner flies
At the castle siege we'll lay them low
At cannon's blast we'll break their line
And a tale we'll bring of a fallen king
The ship of the warrior is yet to sail

We will go to war
We will fight as one
We will honor the Crown of the West

A fearsome foe takes up the field
But at battle's end our banner flies
At the castle siege we'll lay them low
At cannon's blast we'll break their line
And a tale we'll bring of a fallen king
The ship of the warrior is yet to sail.
