Who rides for the King?

A sword like lightning flashing high,

A strong arm and a steady eye;

He'll gallop and gallop and do and die;

Drink to them, drink to them horse and man,

Pledge them a stirrup cup.

Who rides for the King?
A trusty wight, a gallant knight,
'Tis he rides for the King!
Give him a brave, a noble steed,
Like scurrying storm for strength and speed,
A sword like lightning flashing high,
A strong arm and a steady eye;
He'll gallop and gallop and do and die;
He rides for the King!
Pledge them a stirrup cup,
The friend in need and the matchless steed,
There's those that strike when strike they can,
The true we'll bless, the false we'll ban;
Drink to them, drink to them horse and man,
Pledge them a stirrup cup.
Who rides for the King?...
