Revisiting The Immigrant Song 30 Some Years Later...

So I listened to Led Zeppelin a lot in the 70's and 80's.  I have to admit, I never fully knew the lyrics of the immigrant song.  Check them out, they kick ass, take names, and then burn villages while listening to the lamentations of their women . (I am trying not to use the word "awesome" anymore), so these lyrics kick ass!
Cant wait for the third season of Vikings!

 


"Immigrant Song"

Ah, ah,
We come from the land of the ice and snow,
From the midnight sun where the hot springs flow.
The hammer of the gods will drive our ships to new lands,
To fight the horde, singing and crying: Valhalla, I am coming!

On we sweep with threshing oar, Our only goal will be the western shore.

Ah, ah,
We come from the land of the ice and snow,
From the midnight sun where the hot springs blow.
How soft your fields so green, can whisper tales of gore,
Of how we calmed the tides of war. We are your overlords.

On we sweep with threshing oar, Our only goal will be the western shore.

So now you'd better stop and rebuild all your ruins,
For peace and trust can win the day despite of all your losing.
