Filkin’ around: This Land is Our Land

High Road

Two posts in a row! What’s the world coming to? I think I may have finally found a song that Slvr can sing along to, plus it gives me an excuse to use one of my favorite screenshots from High Road, and hopefully this’ll be much less boring than bragging about all the silly little things my toons have been up to (especially considering they really don’t do much that’s brag-worthy, and seriously, does anyone besides me really want every last detail on MY toons? You probably have your own to think about!).

Woody Guthrie, my most sincere apologies for butchering your American classic, “This Land is Your Land.”

Chorus:
This land is our land, this land’s not your land
From the Old Man’s Face Inn, to Greenweald Lane now
From the Lost Soul’s Swamp, to the Beckside Castle
This land was made for the Netherese

Along the High Road, as you’re there marchin’
Better watch out for those sellsword archers
Look out below you, here come some werewolves
This land was made for the Netherese

{Chorus}

That black-robed wizard, he’s never alone
He’s got his rats and his summoned shadows
He’s an angry bald dude who’s out to get you
This land was made for the Netherese

{Chorus}

High Road is thick with bears and brush creepers
Bring your best weapons, you’re gonna need ’em
Against the mudmen, footpads and orc scouts
This land was made for the Netherese

{Chorus}

Along the river, up by the waterfalls
Maybe you’ll see some water elementals
And the bandit dastards will sneak up on you
This land was made for the Netherese

{Repeat chorus twice}

[Irrelevant fact: This also works fairly well to the tune of “You Are My Sunshine.” Hmmm… wonder if the two versions would harmonize well.]
