The Walrus at work Origins: Over the Hills and Far Away / O'er the... (39) RE: O'er the Hills 13 Sep 02

Many years ago, I caame across two verses purporting to come from the death of Marlborough (daamned if I can remember where I got them):

All Grenadiers, now change your song,
And sing no more of battles won,
No victory shall grace us now
Since we have lost our Marlborough

You who have fought on Blenhein's field
And forced the strongest towns to yield,
Now break your arms and turn to plough
Since we have lost our Marlborough

Unfortunately, I don't have a chorus.

Best Wishes
