    Collaborative track : John Eagle and Gordon_m

    After our collaboration on AD 1066 we decided to go for something a lot more up-to-date.
    So here we are, knocking on the door of the Thirteenth Century...

    Original Concept and Lyrics : John Eagle
    Music & Production : Gordon_m

    If the keen-eared listener spots a change in lyrical style towards the end of the track, don't worry John hasn't lost his gift for wordsmithery - dear listener, that is the work of Gordon_m, possibly inspired by Ira Gershwin and Lorenz Hart.
    Templars sojourned home, the Third Crusade amassed
    War horses blowing steam, prancing in the lane
    Wilfred of Ivanhoe rode his steed still dressed
    The battle just an echo, he would live to fight again

    As a Saxon he lived loyal to his Norman King
    His father banished him, refused him his coat and ring
    He sought a maiden's hand, Rowena was her name
    Prince John assumed the throne with Richard in distress
    A Kingdom's shame

    Meanwhile something is stirring in England's Green Woods

    Locksley and his men combed the woods with care
    Aimed arrows pointedly and stole with a rebel's flair
    Together they would harrow a place beside the Crown
    Locksley and Ivanhoe planned to storm the castle grounds!

    Prince John enjoyed the life, a remote and foolish King
    Presiding over tournaments, the best Knights it would bring
    A rival Norman champion made to steal Rowena's hand
    Brave Ivanhoe unseated him to thwart his wedding plans!

    Locksley and his men left the woods behind
    The Black Knight at their side, fearlessly they climbed
    The Templar Knights in Prince John's pay tried vainly to resist
    But Robin's men for England's sake knew they must persist

    Triumphant at the gates, Protects a Nation's fate, Could it be the Lionheart?
    The Dark Knight shows his face, Prince John is in disgrace, England has its Lionheart!
    Home from a foreign land, Home is in safe hands, Home again the Lionheart!
    Back to turn the tide, The Kingdom has its Pride, All Hail the Lionheart!
