Thin Line
 
Lord of Chivalry
 
It is said that in days of old
Men went searching for fame untold
Spurs of silver and a chain a gold
The Lords of Chivalry
They kneel to kings and an oath they speak
Protect the poor and keep the weak
Honor for the right they seek
Til the world's time shall cease

Ride Ride Lords of Chivalry
Ride til the people of the land are free
Evil hears your battlecall
And flees for it dares not stand
Ride into battle with banners bright
Drive away darkness, bring the light
Ride into the glorious fight
For a gold chain never fades

From the East a young man rides
With flaming hair and laughing eyes
A soaring soul and a battle cry
A true lord riding free
He rides for glory and he rides for fame
His ladies' honor and a noble name
A wild spirit whom none can tame
A Lord of Chivalry

Ride Ride Lords of Chivalry
Ride til the people of the land are free
Evil hears your battlecall
And flees for it dares not stand
Ride into battle with banners bright
Drive away darkness, bring the light
Ride into the glorious fight
For a gold chain never fades

The kingdom's glorious service called
In the list, at war, or in the hall
With love and laughter let all recall
The Paragon of Chivalry
For the honor of his ladies the Crown he bore
In times of peace, on the field of war
His fames resounds in legend and lore
The Lord of Chivalry

Ride Ride Lord of Chivalry
Ride til the people of the land are free
Evil hears your battlecall 
And flees for it dares not stand
Ride into battle with banners bright
Drive away darkness, bring the light
Ride into the glorious fight
For a gold chain  never fade

In final battle with the dauntless foe
He fought to his last, stood toe to toe
At Valhalla's Gates, the gods now know
The Lord of Chivalry
His joy in battle and his heart's desire
In his death let the glory of his life inspire
His memory brings our souls to fire
The Lord of Chivalry

Ride Ride Lord of Chivalry
Ride til the people of the land are free
I still hear your battlecall
But where you've gone I cannot say
Ride into battle with banners bright
Drive away darkness, bring the light
Ride on forever, our valiant knight
For a pure heart never fades
No, a true knight never fades
