An original from years ago.
Al-Barran Battle Song

Refrain:
Rally all men, let the battle begin
Our enemies soon ‘round our feet will be lyin’
With sword and with shield to no man we’ll yield _
March into the dawn – it’s a good day for dyin’


Come harken the cry, let your banners fly
Come gather your arms, kiss your women goodbye
The baron has called for warriors all _
Where al-Barran leads, the Outlands will follow

Refrain

To fight for our king, we march as we sing
Across the wide valleys we hear the blades ring
Great _____ does lead – his summons we heed _
All enemies bow to the glorious Outlands

Refrain

Then on without fear, be it far or near
We’ll march to Estrella or to Calontir
No foe is too strong – all fear our brave song _
We hear the drums calling – Great al-Barran answers

Refrain

March forth on this day, march into the fray
There’s none with such might to stand in our way
The rivers run red – they’re counting their dead _
Send word to the raven – there’s feasting tomorrow

Refrain

Even older than the al-Barran battle song
The Outlands Song

Twas on a dark and starry night
The King did come to me
Saying "Quickly gird you for the fight
And its off to war we'll be"
So I'm gathering my men at arms
Good shieldmen one and all
And it's off to fight in Western lands
Where allied brethern fall

Chorus:
My Kingdom is The Outlands and of Her I will sing
My lady has my truest love my blood is for my King
I'm following His Majesty in some hot foreign war
My heart is in The Outlands, and will be evermore

Eight hundred mile we rode our steeds
To meet them in the sun
Some God-forsaken enemy
Stout warriors every one
Our allied brothers at our sides
Good men from Calontir
The Aten King cried "Forward men"
To death on Outlands spears

We met them on the broken field
Their blood in rivers ran
Their King refused the right to yield
We killed them to a man
We hit the Aten shield wall
They dropped their swords and fled
When The Outlands had won through it all
You could not count the dead

At Pennsic AS Twenty-three
The Outlands on the field
The Eastern flanking shield wall
Never had the chance to yield
We drove them back like cattle
As they fell beneath our swords-
King Christopher, Queen Cymber
And Their Noble Outlands Lords

We stood in Adlersruhe
A bridge covered in gore
Outnumbered in a foreign land
Held to the Oaths we swore
The plains were dark with Lions
Black Stars of Ansteorre
The White Stag leapt to battle
Now the Lion leaps no more

Our ladies met them at the pass
Sixteen fighters strong
The Aten men laughed at them
Queen Tara proved them wrong
They struck the Aten shield wall
And men heard a death bell ring
Now no longer will they scoff
For they felt the beauties sting

Our king called us to battle
To fight the Aten horde
They've never lost Estrella men
Our allies need this war
We swept them on the open field
We crushed them in the fray
The Aten Army's spirit broke
The Outlands won the day

My Kingdom is The Outlands
And it will be evermore

Ducal March
(an Outlands Battle song)

Unfurl your banners, raise them high
Hey Ho, the Green and Gold!
Stand them 'gainst the bright blue sky
The Doe is Grace, the Stag is bold
Catch the wind and watch them fly
Hey Ho, the Green and Gold
Away, away, the Outlands goes to War,
to WAR!!

Mend your sword and strap your shield
Hey Ho, the Green and Gold!
Soul of fire, heart of steel
The Doe is Grace, the Stag is bold
I'll meet you on Estrella's field
Hey Ho, the Green and Gold
Away, away, the Outlands goes to war,
To WAR!!

We follow the Stag, and his Brothers
They're waiting there upon the field
They know the tune the piper's playing
They know the song of sword and shield
We follow the Stag and his Brothers
o'er the land and the raging sea
They're clad in mail, armed with spears
Crowned in green strawberry leaves!

Unfurl your banners, raise them high
Hey Ho, the Green and Gold!
Stand them 'gainst the bright blue sky
The Doe is Grace, the Stag is bold
Cacth the wind and watch them fly
Hey Ho, the Green and Gold
Away, away, the Outlands goes to War,
to WAR!!

Mend your sword and strap your shield
Hey Ho, the Green and Gold!
Soul of fire, heart of steel
The Doe is Grace, the Stag is bold
I'll meet you on Estrella's field
Hey Ho, the Green and Gold
Away, away, the Outlands goes to war,
To WAR!!

Dominus Outlandium
(by Thomas Winterbourne)

Who is the rock at the root of the mountain?
There is the name of our king
Who is the stone at the bottom of the fountain
that holds the water in?
My Queen!

What is the song that I sing in the morning?
What is the song that I sing at night?
What is the song through the dark night turning
to the morning light?

I sing Ave, Ave, Regina Praeculum!
Who is the lady of this land for whom these words are sung?
I sing Ave, Ave, my Captain, Lord, and King!
Who is the master of this land,
Dominus Outlandium!

Where is the field where the cold wind’s blowing
underneath the starry sky?
Who will delay when the Stag is callin’
I swear My Lord, not I!

What is the song that we sing in the shield wall?
What is the song of sword and spear?
Look to the east, hear the Outland’s callin’
my song is always there!

I sing Ave, Ave, Regina Praeculum!
Who is the lady of this land for whom these words are sung?
I sing Ave, Ave, my Captain, Lord, and King!
Who is the master of this land,
Dominus Outlandium!

Who is the rock at the root of the mountain?
There is the name of our king
Who is the stone at the bottom of the fountain
that holds the water in?
My Queen!

What is the song that I sing in the morning?
What is the song that I sing at night?
What is the song through the dark night turning
to the morning light?

I sing Ave, Ave, Regina Praeculum!
Who is the lady of this land for whom these words are sung?
I sing Ave, Ave, my Captain, Lord, and King!
Who is the master of this land,
Dominus Outlandium!
