Zulu Film Quote: (Jack Hawkins) Death waits you. You have made a covenant with death, and with Hell you are in agreement. You're all going to die. Don't you realize? Can't you see? You're all going to die. Die. Death awaits you all.

"Here's forty shillings on the drum
To those who volunteer to come
To list to fight the foe today
Over the hills and far away


O'er the hills and o'er the main
To Flanders, Portugal and Spain
King George commands and we obey
Over the hills and far away

When duty calls me I must go
To stand and face another foe
But part of me will always stray
Over the hills and far away



Then fall in lads behind the drum
With colours blazing like the sun
Along the road to come what may
Over the hills and far away



If I should fall to rise no more
As many comrades did before
Then ask the drums and fifes to play
Over the hills and far away

Over the hills and far away
Over the hills and far away

Ray,

That particular version of the song dates from 1996, and Copyrighted to Carlton UK Television Limited.

It comes from the television series Sharpe, which starred Sean Bean, the adaption of the traditional 18th Century song I'm sure was the work of John Tamms, an English folk-singer, who played Daniel Hagman in the series.

The 18th Century version begins:

Hark, now the drums beat up again,
For all true soldier gentlemen,
Then let us 'list and march, I say,
Over the hills and far away.

(Chorus)
Over the hills and o'er the main,
To Flanders, Portugal and Spain,
Queen Anne commands and we'll obey,
Over the hills and far away.

The original song in its seventh verse introduces two 18th Century British heroes:

No more from sound of drum retreat,
While Marlborough and Galway beat,
The French and Spaniards every day,
When over the hills and far away.

(Chorus)
Over the hills and o'er the main,...


The tune remained popular in the later wars of the 18th Century, and carried on through to the wars against the French fought over the period of 1793 to 1815, hence - I surmise - why it was used in the television series.
