LYRICS



“Hail The Mountain King”

hail the mountain king
hail the peace he brings
by his blood; this land shall be free.
in the deep down low
lay our lord with the stone
in the heart of the mountain
in Shadow below

down in caverns deep
where the ancients sleep
where the dragons purr and roam
there’s a sacred yearn
and a blackbird that churns
in heart of the mountain
in the Shadow below

under ancient grove
neath the old hollow
where the roots of mountain are found
there the Dark layed a den
so the King did descend
to heart of the mountain
to Shadow below

not the golden horde
hath slain our lord
not the arrow wounding his side
but for that which rests
now upon our kings breast
the heart of the mountain
in Shadow below

After battle waged
and the dragon is slain
go and lay his body low
and our peace be returned
with the king now interned
in heart of the mountain
in Shadow below

now our debts repaid
now our glory remade
o’er the peak may the sun and moon shine
underneath grows a glow
from sword and the stone
in heart of the mountain
in Shadow below
In heart of the mountain in Shadow below

hail the mountain king!
hail the song he sings!
he reigns in the Darkness; he shines!
hail the sword! hail the stone!
hail them glistening bones!
in the heart of the mountain
in Shadow below
