Battle Hymn of the Goliath

The "Gil" sings...

Gil’s Battle Song

(Sung to the tune of ‘Eliza Lee’ by The Dreadnoughts)

(Verse)

From the top of the mount by ancients made

Ho wey! Ho! Their deed is done

The sons of bitches did invade

Butchered all our kin til the rise of sun.

(Chorus)

So we’ll hunt them down til the debt is paid

Ho wey! Ho! When we have won

You’ll find their blood upon my blade

Slay’em to the last until the job is done!

(Verse)

To the valleys green they cut their path

Ho wey! Ho! Their deed is done

For what they did they’ll feel our wrath

Butchered all our kin til the rise of sun.

(Chorus)

So we’ll hunt them down til the debt is paid

Ho wey! Ho! When we have won

You’ll find their blood upon my blade

Slay’em to the last until the job is done!

(Verse)

And when we get to their own town

Ho wey! Ho! Their deed is done

We’ll knock their hairy heads around

Butchered all our kin til the rise of sun.

(Chorus)

So we’ll hunt them down til the debt is paid

Ho wey! Ho! When we have won

You’ll find their blood upon my blade

Slay’em to the last until the job is done!

(Verse)

They took our kith and they took our kin

Ho wey! Ho! Their deed is done

They know not how deep shit they’re in

Butchered all our kin til the rise of sun.

(Chorus)

So we’ll hunt them down til the debt is paid

Ho wey! Ho! When we have won

You’ll find their blood upon my blade

Slay’em to the last until the job is done!

(Verse)

And when we’re back in Brindol town

Ho wey! Ho! Our deed is done

I’ll stand you whiskeys all around

Butchered all our foe til the rise of sun.

(Chorus)

So we’ll hunt them down til the debt is paid

Ho wey! Ho! When we have won

You’ll find their blood upon my blade

Slay’em to the last until the job is done!

And we’ll hunt them down til the debt is paid

Ho wey! Ho! When we have won

You’ll find their blood upon my blade

Slay’em to the last until the job is done!

Wow…the song lyrics are really fitting in nicely w/ the story. Good find! As for the rhythm, I started listening, and was trying to read along, but shortly found out it is an entirely different song.

I was looking for a karaoke version, but no luck…

It was common with songs like these to have the majority of it be chorus like, in that everyone knew most of the words, there are a few variable lines where people could make up their own verses. They would sometimes take turns improvising thier own lyrics on the solo parts, and the rest of the work gang could continue singing on the choruses.
