The War of the Dwarves and Orcs Part V

A soldier’s simple song, sung in barracks, in taverns and ever more increasingly on the long road to war. It remembers that when hope was nearly lost, it came from the Iron Hills.


I held your hand
When you breathed your last
There beside the Silverlode flowing fast

But we held the vale
And suffered not in vain
Only halting before Durin's bane

And the wars we've won
and deeds we've done
echo down Iron Hills today

On a dark winters day
We held evil at bay
Though I lost my brothers in the fray

And the wars we've won
And deeds we've done
Are songs in the Hills today...


from Songs of the Dwarves, released December 11, 2012
