Lyrics
The world awaits another move
The players have so much to prove And so control the lowly pawn
Across the world, I know not where,
Nor am I paid to choose or care, We’ll soon be up and gone

And to the sea, and to the wood,
To fight the foe as well we should, We suffer to the wilderness.
In sun and rain, we march along
And chant the ancient soldier’s song As ever on we press.

We’ve got no choice, it’s off we go
We set sail for Ontario
With the turning of the tide
The King has called, the paper’s signed
There is no way to change his mind
O Bloody Royal pride.
O Bloody Royal pride.

For pride or pension, matters not.
The dice are cast, and it’s my lot To take up arms and do my part
So far away from kith and kin
Whom I may never see again Becept with my heart

And some will die from native spear
And some will live to shed a tear And some will change forever more.
Across the world, I know not where,
Nor am I paid to choose or care, But to go and fight this war.

We’ve got no choice, it’s off we go
We set sail for Ontario
With the turning of the tide
The King has called, the paper’s signed
There is no way to change his mind
O Bloody Royal pride.
O Bloody Royal pride.

I wish you peace, my wife and love
And when you see the stars above Know that I can see them too
And in the forests far away
I’ll think of you both night and day And this may see me through.

And every time a comrade falls
Or native feels our musket balls I pray you see my monthly due.
If I were gentry, schooled and rich,
Not lying in this muddy ditch, Oh, Lord, if it were true...

We’ve got no choice, it’s off we go
We set sail for Ontario
With the turning of the tide
The King has called, the paper’s signed
There is no way to change his mind
O Bloody Royal pride.
O Bloody Royal pride.

I vote for this version
From the intro, I like this version much better. Something thrilling about the drumming at the outset. It gives more structure to your guitar playing. I like the fills into the changes too. The whole arrangement adds emotion, variation and a sense of compelling urgency. there are moments when the timing is not perfect, which is too bad, since this sort of drummer kind of requires precision by all the other players. At 2:45, I would've dropped out the snare for a bit. I dig this arrangement. Nice track.

Not banjo!
That's a cheap Chinese octave mandolin that I got from Larkinthemorning.com. Kinda of a rattly, shallow sound all by itself, really. Experimental!

This is even more dynamic David
While the unplugged version shows you talent as a writer and singer, this one shoe all that and you gifts as an Arranger/Producer.

Excellent work here as well my friend,

I think
that I would agree with Ed. The song is strong enough on it's own and this version lets the production aspect shine.

Just a folk singer. Well - mostly a folk singer, but I like to try just about every style a middle-class white guy from Mid-Michigan can sincerely try. Be sure to check out my "band" — I used to play R&R with these guys back in the 70s, but now we'... [see more]
