Here I stand an age-old man
Face lined with wisdom and strength
A passing stranger you wait intently
To hear my tale at its length

Listen now strange man

A warrior skilled in death
In the shogun's name to keep the peace
Off to war leaving love behind
Oh how she cried to see me leave
I know she prays for me

Battle fronts my eyes
Not afraid to die
Raise the sword high
Defense of honor and pride
I, samurai

A desperate battle we fought for 17 days
Victorious we turn for home and make our way
Only to find a stealth attack, they burned the village down
All the people lie dying on the ground

Now I pray for her
