The Gods Alone Know Where

We set our sails and hauled our oars,
Heading for the Gods alone know where,
In the Whales' wake we left our shores,
Heading for the Gods know where.

We steered the wind that Asgard sent,
Heading for the Gods alone know where,
The waves did rage without relent,
Heading for the Gods alone know where.

So heave me heroes, heave and haul,
Valhalla hails thee one and all.

The crash of foam crest foamed and flowed,
Heading for the Gods alone know where,
The hail and hoar frost hacked our crew,
Heading for the Gods alone know where.

The albatrosses in the sky,
Heading for the Gods alone know where,
Like Valkieries where the vanquished lie,
Heading for the Gods alone know where.

So heave me heroes, heave and haul,
Valhalla hails thee one and all.

The seas turned black as boiling tar
Heading for the Gods alone know where
And the shadow shrouds obscured our star
Heading for the Gods alone know where

The mighty Midgard serpentís tail,
Heading for the Gods alone know where,
It churned the sea up like a flail,
Heading for the Gods alone know where.

So haul me heroes, heave and haul
Valhalla hails thee one and all

We set our sails and hauled our oars,
Heading for the Gods alone know where,
In the Whales' wake we left our shores,
Heading for the Gods know where.

As if was destiny was planned
Heading for the Gods alone know where
Eventually we sighted land
Heading for the Gods alone know where

So heave me heroes, heave and haul,
Valhalla hails thee one and all.

So heave me heroes, heave and haul,
Valhalla hails thee one and all.


This is based on the song "Voyaging to Vinland" © Robert Calvert - from the album, Lucky Leif and the Longships
Its slightly different from the usual one heard around faction camps, as I put two verses together and effectively cut one out.
