Daggerfall Covenant
Breton
When the Dragon's Knights first rode the ways,
Swording every monster seen,
Then did heroes' mighty plays
Hearten all in this land green.
But now with peasant and noble both
I serve this realm as its heart does beat.
And find myself increasing loath
The breaking of any peace.


Chorus
In this land I'll proudly stand
Till I die and hear Arkay's call.
For though a wizard or king may command,
I'll always be from Daggerfall.


Now Wayrester gold it piles up high,
And men show the price of their lives.
But yet there stand folk you cannot buy
No matter changing fortune's tides.
So let all the rich prance and preen,
Dancing for coins tossed their way.
From this fair kingdom green
My loyalty shall never stray.


Chorus
In this land I'll proudly stand
Till I die and hear Arkay's call.
For though a wizard or king may command,
I'll always be from Daggerfall.


Now other realms sing prouder songs,
And their folk come swaggering our way.
Yet if those realms are so free of wrongs,
Why do their folk come to stay?
Oh, many boasts are empty boasts,
And to tales of distant lands our hearts recall,
But among all the brightest toasts
There's one that beats them all.


Chorus
In this land I'll proudly stand
Till I die and hear Arkay's call.
For though a wizard or king may command,
I'll always be from Daggerfall.


And in Daggerfall none shall starve or thirst
For so the fair law demands.
But of all fair folk we are the first
To strike down unjust laws and commands.
The elves may live in greater halls
Or wear flawless gems on every toe.
Such folk take greater and grander falls
And so find harder rows to hoe.


Chorus
In this land I'll proudly stand
Till I die and hear Arkay's call.
For though a wizard or king may command,
I'll always be from Daggerfall
