Odin's Ride

The God of the Hunt spares neither himself nor his steed
Broadhat rides to Asgard with a great prize

The God of the Hanged has cheated death
stolen knowledge he takes from southern lands

Allfather Odin rides Sleipnir northward
devouring miles in vast mouthfuls like the Midgard serpent

The black eagle pursues him with great vigor and ardor
for to recover the stolen prize taken from him

Yet he cannot catch the deceiver in it's dread talons
The Hooded One escapes it's grasp

Across the Rainbow bridge rides the father of victory
Safe again in the walls of Valhalla

The God of the Hunt spares neither himself nor his steed
Broadhat rides to Asgard with a great prize

The God of the Hanged has cheated death
stolen knowledge he takes from southern lands

Allfather Odin rides Sleipnir northward
devouring miles in vast mouthfuls like the Midgard serpent

The black eagle pursues him with great vigor and ardor
for to recover the stolen prize taken from him

Yet he cannot catch the deceiver in it's dread talons
The Hooded One escapes it's grasp

Across the Rainbow bridge rides the father of victory
Safe again in the walls of Valhalla
