Ivan Drever & Duncan Chisholm - The Viking Bride lyrics

'Twas a Viking boat from a Norway shore and a tall sea-king was he
And he sailed away to return no more nor to hear again the deep-toned roar
He sank beneath the foam of the sea
He sank beneath the foam of the sea

The Orkney isles was the land he sought and a royal bride to wed
He was watching out to the northern broads, watching eyes that looked for nought
But the sight of the dragon head
Aye the sight of the dragon head

The sea is wild and free me boys, the sea is wild and free
And o'er the back of the ocean wide, we sail our barks for the wind and the tide
And sing aloud in our glee me boys
Sing aloud in our glee

The fish had the turn of the tide my boys, the fish had the turn of the tide
And whisper low while the breezes blow,
While the girl has to be the bride my boys
The girl has to be the bride

As the music ceased there rose a gale that became a hurricane blast
And the cheek of the North Sea king turned pale, heard the sound of the ocean's wail
And saw the bending mast
Aye he saw the bending mast

With a shrieking and a moaning the shrouds were rent and the mast went by the side
And the brave Norse men in the billows went, with their barking dog, king of the sand
To take his bonnie bride
Aye to take his bonnie bride
