The Duke Of Marlborough

You generals all and champions bold that take delight in field
That knock down palaces and castle walls but now to death must yield
I am an Englishman by birth, Lord Marlborough is my name
In Devonshire I drew my breath, a place of noted fame
I was beloved by all my men, kings and princes likewise
It's many a town I often took, and did the world surprise
King Charles the Second I did serve to face the foe in France
And at the battle of Ramilles I boldly did advance

The sun was down, the earth did shake, how loudly did I cry
Fight on, my lads, for old England's sake, we'll conquer or we'll die
That very day my horse got shot, 'twas by a musket ball
And as I mounted up again, my aide-de-camp did fall

Now on a bed of sickness lie, I am resigned to die
You generals all and champions bold stand true as well as I
Stand true my lads and bribes but fight with courage bold
I led my men through smoke and fire but never bribed by gold
