Swing Low, Sweet Valkyrie-Maiden        Swing Low... MP3

Swing low, sweet valkyrie-maiden,
Coming for to carry me home,
Swing low, sweet valkyrie-maiden,
Coming for to carry me home.

I looked up to Valhall, and what did I see,
Coming for to carry me home?
A band of valkyrjur coming after me,
Coming for to carry me home.

Chorus

The river runs fast and the river runs wide,
Coming for to carry me home,
There's mead and fighting on the other side,
Coming for to carry me home.

Chorus 

The river runs deep and the river runs cold,
Coming for to carry me home,
Death don't mean nothin' to the warrior soul.
Coming for to carry me home.

Chorus

If you get there before I do,
Coming for to carry me home,
Tell Egill Skalla-Grímsson I'm coming too.
Coming for to carry me home.

Chorus

Author's Note:
Extra points are awarded to any English-speaker who can pronounce the name Egill Skalla-Grímsson properly,
with the Icelandic double-l semi-click, while singing this song when squiffy.
