Minstrel Tales - O Flower of Geoff

O Flower of Geoff

This is a lament sung by the soldiers returned to fight for Geoff.

O Flower of Geoff,
When will we see your like again
That fought and died for
Your dear land, home and fief
And stood against them,
That monstrous army,
We are bound homeward
To fight again.

The hills are bare now,
And harvester leaves lie thick and still
O'er land that is lost now,
Which those so dearly held
That stood against them,
That monstrous army
We are bound homeward
To fight again.

Those days are past now
And in the past they must remain
But we can still rise now
And be proud Geoff again!
That stood against them
That monstrous army
We are bound homeward
To fight again.

O Flower of Geoff,
When will we see your like again
That fought and died for
Your dear land, home and fief.
And stood against them,
That monstrous army,
We are bound homeward
To fight again.
(Loosely adapted from 'O Flower of Scotland')

  1. Thanks Mort... This is a fantastic anthem. I know my version isn't doing justice to it, but I hope to inspire some enthusiasm in my players with the real version.

  2. I like your version just fine, Jason. I plan on borrowing it sometime. With your permission, of course. ;)
