Go as your fathers go

Asked my father if Id see
My kin gone on before me
He took me upon his knee
And pointd out across the sea

Asked my father if Id sail
With sword in hand and a coat of mail
Ive a blade for you, he said
It reaps the fields which feed our stead.

In death they go
On dragon ships row
Always they know
Always they know
Go as your fathers go

Asked my father how to be
As wise and brave and strong as he
Tr to the Gods and Goddesses both
With golden ring then make your oath

In death they go
On dragon ships row
Always they know
Always they know
Go as your fathers go

Jonathan Cyr of Raven Kindred North

This appeared as a song on the album "Tru Spirit - Songs of our Heathen Ancestry"
