I Will Be Back
I am a soldier who’s pledged to his king. I slayed the great dragon, I wear the King’s ring.
The Mongols attacked us high up on the track, yea though they killed me, I will be back.
Nothing can stop me for I will be back.
I am a fair maiden just 14 years old, with eyes like the Robin and hair of pure gold.
I’m pledged to a fine boy so brave and so bold, I knew that he loved me without being told.
The slavers surprised me while opening my pack, I died by my own hand, but I will be back.
I love my sweet Tommy, yes I will be back.
I am an old man, I’ve had a long life. I’ve eight grown children and one loyal wife.
They think that I’m gone now to never return, but I’m not near finished, I’ve lessons to learn.
Don’t grieve for me Sonny, I died in the sack, don’t worry my darlings for I will be back.
