Craig Herbertson – He Who Would Be King lyrics

One for the sailing ship safe cross the sea
One for the Hessian's bold company
One for the soldier who will follow me
One for the rightful king whoever he may be

Dance lady dance
Sing soldier sing
Drink to the fortune
Of he who would be king

One for the hills of home far far away
One for the foreign field, honour and grave
One for the foreign foe for whom we pray
One for the dogs of war to keep us in pay

Dance lady dance
Sing soldier sing
Drink to the fortune
Of he who would be king

One for the lady, one for the lord
One for the musket, one for the sword
One for a bonnie prince, his promised word
None for sweet William, merciless in war

Dance lady dance
Sing soldier sing
Drink to the fortune
Of he who would be king
