Boudica`s Song

(Open G - D - C concert pitch)

In East Brittania
In the first century
A heroine was born
From the ashes of The Trees

Red hair waving free
Armour gleam of Nemain`s Moon
She dreamed The Bull and
Augury in tune

Boudica, a warrior princess
Boudica, Bridget sent to earth
Boudica, the legions feared this priestess
Boudica, Protectress of...........Iceni hearths

Scapula and son
Of paternalistic Rome
Conjured Deities of War
Sacking Celtic homes

A shrine they built
To The Claudius God King
Boudica did vow The Druids Justice
She would bring


(change D - C - D - C)

She battled to keep ancestral rights
For Pagans to be free
The Roman troops were to fraught with strife
For Iceni clans to beat



Breaca`s rebellion
May have been quelled
But Her heart was pure whilst
Thwarting Patrician hell

In chariot was She
Long red hair of The Serpent Spear
Fighting for Her bairns and
Her people`s dreams so clear


Oh! Boudica, The Boudica
Breaca, your ancient name
Oh! Boudica, The Boudica
Your convictions I don`t blame
