Where are the songs that remind me of home?
Where are the fields that I used to roam?
Where are my comrades, my loved ones so dear?
They're all back at home in sweet Calontir.

Where is the mason who built the great wall?
Scarce has he ever missed clarion's call.
He'll never know how we stand or we fall,
'Til he hears tales of glory in Valor's meadhall.

Where are the songs that remind me of home?
Where are the fields that I used to roam?
Where are my comrades, my loved ones so dear?
They're all back at home in sweet Calontir.

Where is fray's marshall, the bard of Blackmoor?
Singing the lyrics of slaughter's red score.
Leading the death-dance as we march to the fore.
Oh what does he see of now rather than war?

Where are the songs that remind me of home?
Where are the fields that I used to roam?
Where are my comrades, my loved ones so dear?
They're all back at home in sweet Calontir.

Where are the war-kings who once battles planned
Each one in turn summoned Falcon war band
Five score grim warriors, fierce death in their hand
s But now Counts, Earls and Dukes stay home guarding their lands.

Where are the songs that remind me of home?
Where are the fields that I used to roam?
Where are my comrades, my loved ones so dear?
They're all back at home in sweet Calontir.

Where are the huscarls who slaughter-joy share?
Ariel, William, the proud Eichmann pair,
Alric, Mihangle, what's that badge that you wear?
As we marched off to battle, I thought you'd be there.

So sing me a song that reminds me of home
Tell of the fields that I used to roam
I missed all my comrades, my loved ones so dear.
They're all back at home in Sweet Calontir.
