**More details about this song in the digital liner notes booklet that comes with the download of this album!**


The way was long, the wind was cold
The minstrel was grey and old
His tattered cloak, and tresses grey
Seem'd to known a better day
The harp, his sole remaining joy
Was carried by an orphan boy

The last of all the Bards,
The last of all the Bards was he,
The last of all the Bards,
The last of all the Bards was he...

Where his sword once hung, now a walking stick
Where his songs were sung, now the land is sick
In the court of kings, rang his ancient songs
Now the hammer rings for orcish throngs
And who can sing the healing words;
Summon bright kings to vanquish dark hordes?


In forgotten realms of elves and men
He saw her dancing in twilight glen
He sought her love over mountains blue
But he never returned and the legend grew
That he left his harp with an orphan boy
Who learned his songs and knew the joy ... (of)


Now the boy is grown, become a man
With singing sword to heal the land
And a rumour of song
From birds on the wing
Has the Harp returned?
Can it truly be him?
