Track Name: Brigantia
Brigantia (Music and Words Tim Hunter)

We worshipped nature all alone
Worshipped in the morning sun
Surrounded by standing stones
In a green and peaceful land
In an unspoilt natural world
We worshipped the sun, the moon, the stars
Nature made us what we are

Then invaders came and set our culture aflame
Subjugated us, imposed their will
But they couldn’t kill our spirit, that remains
So we made a stand, to defend our land
We became Brigantia
Any soldiers who are slain
Will not have died in vain
We’ll not end up in chains
The North will rise again
Hear our battle cry, we will do or die

Brigantia! The Kingdom of the North
Brigantia! The Kingdom
of the North
Brigantia!

Victory is ours if
we only believe
In Brigantia
Track Name: North Rising
North Rising (Music and Words Tim Hunter)

The North is Rising once again
Believe in Victory my friend
Let’s fight to the end
Don’t be deceived
The North is Rising once again
Believe in Victory my friend
Let’s fight to the end, don’t be deceived

We’re not a region, we’re an island nation
And we’ve been independent now for so long
We’ve always had to fight occupation
Now we all must unite to save Fair Albion

The North is Rising once again
Believe in Victory my friend
Let’s fight to the end, Don’t be deceived
The North is Rising once again
Believe in Victory my friend
Let’s fight to the end, don’t be deceived

Make the sign of victory and take back our
Sovereignty, and democracy
No
Surrender!
Make the
V sign!
Track Name: Yorkshire Day
Yorkshire Day (Music and Words Tim Hunter)

Yorkshire, Yorkshire Day
Yorkshire, Yorkshire Day

From the moorland way to the smugglers bay
People always mean what they say
It’s the Yorkshire Way
And it came to be,
God’s own country
In 875 AD
So this is Yorkshire Day

Yorkshire, Yorkshire Day
Yorkshire, Yorkshire Day

These three ridings will never be divided
All those who are born therein or resident and loyal to the ridings
Will be Yorkshiremen and women

Lord take us to the Broad Acres
Where the White Rose grows

From the fields of Green to the coastal scenes
People always say what they mean
It’s the Yorkshire Way

Yorkshire, Yorkshire Day
Yorkshire, Yorkshire Day
Track Name: BloodAxe (The last of the Viking Kings)
Bloodaxe (The Last Of The Viking Kings) (Music and Words Tim Hunter)

Bloodaxe, The Last of the Viking Kings,
Bloodaxe, The Last of the Viking Kings

In their Longships the Viking marauders came
Pagan Plunderers bringing nothing but
thunder and pain

Bloodaxe, The Last of the Viking Kings,
Bloodaxe, The Last of the Viking Kings
Bloodaxe attacks!

With Whirlwinds and lightening
The slaughter begins
In 948 Eric Bloodaxe is York’s new king

Bloodaxe,
The Last of the Viking Kings
Bloodaxe,
The Last of the Viking Kings

In his palace in York
Eric ruled with
Gunnhild
To keep the crown many killed
He had many enemies
Eric was ambushed and died,
and he entered Valhalla
Now he’s there with his Axe by his side
Bloodaxe, The Last of the Viking Kings,
Bloodaxe, The Last of the Viking Kings
Track Name: Maundy Money
Maundy Money (Music and Words Tim Hunter)

(Chorus) Maundy Money,
For the ordinary people
Maundy Money, A gift from King John
Maundy Money, For the ordinary people
Maundy Money

In April 1210
King John was in residence
At Knaresborough Castle
King John provided clothing to paupers
Then on Good Friday he fed a 1,000 of us
Maundy Money, A gift to the poor
Of Knaresborough, The first King to Give
Maundy Money, A gift to the poor of
Knaresborough

Chorus

We must love one another,
We’re all sisters and brothers
We must love one another,
We’re all sisters and brothers

Maundy Money,
A gift to the poor of Knaresborough
The first King to Give Maundy Money
A gift to the poor, of Knaresborough
Maundy Money For the ordinary people
Maundy Money
A gift from King John, Maundy Money, for the ordinary people, Maundy Money
Track Name: Guido (Gunpowder speaks louder than words)
Guido (Gunpowder speaks louder than words) (Music and Words: Tim Hunter)

There was a plot to kill the Scottish King
The protestant King James,
The King of Great Britain
Guido lived in the Knaresborough district
In Scotton he got involved in politics and
conflict

Guido had the right intent when he entered Parliament
He wanted to blow them all to smithereens
This was his scheme

Gunpowder speaks much louder than words ever will, ‘Cos words never kill
Gunpowder speaks much louder than words ever did, ‘Cos words never get rid,
Guido Oh Guido
Guido went to fight in Spain and returned to London to kill King James
He lit the fuse, it all went wrong and this is his song

Guido had the right intent when he entered Parliament
He wanted to blow them all to Kingdom Come
That was the song he sung

Gunpowder speaks much louder than words ever will, ‘Cos words ever kill. Gunpowder speaks much louder than words ever did, ‘Cos words don’t get rid
Guy Fawkes, he didn’t like talk, His actions are to be remembered, every 5th of November
Track Name: Marston Moor (A Very English Civil War)
Marston Moor (A Very English Civil War) (Music and Words: Tim Hunter)

Marston Moor, A Very English Civil War
The monarchy was restored,
Revolution’s a bore
Marston Moor, A Very English Civil War
So what was it all for?

Marston Moor secured the North of England
For the Parliamentarians,
But the Royalist resistance didn’t end
We didn’t want Puritans
We didn’t want politicians
Was a Lord Protector better? No

Marston Moor, A Very English Civil War
The monarchy was restored,
Revolution’s a bore
Marston Moor, A Very English Civil War
So what was it all for?

In The Manor House in Knaresborough Charles capitulated
But the monarchy was restored and soon Cromwell became hated

We didn’t want Puritans
We didn’t want politicians
Was a Lord Protector better? No

Marston Moor, A Very English Civil War
The monarchy was restored,
Revolution’s such a bore
Marston Moor, A Very English Civil War
So what was it all for?
Track Name: Prospects of Adventure
Prospects of Adventure
Music: Tim Hunter, lyrics: Frederick McKinnon.

Let Providence and Fortitude
Be the winds that fill my sails
To achieve my life’s ambition
And lead me on great missions

As a Yorkshire farm boy
Roseberry topping I would climb
To view the sea beyond the shore
Other worlds meant to find

As a toiling village shop lad
With a teeming ocean near
I’d sense a passion in my soul
As Sailor’s tales I’d hear

Now, it’s time to be master of my fate
On Whitby ships I’ll go
To sail the great North Sea
I’ll study seamanship and stars
There’s something calling me
Let Providence and Fortitude
Be the winds that fill my sails
To achieve my life’s ambition
And lead me on great missions

Life on the land is
not for me
I want to be free
I can see . . .
Prospects of Adventure

Let Providence and Fortitude
Be the winds that fill my sails
To achieve my life’s ambition
And lead me on great missions

Prospects of Adventure
Prospects of Adventure
Track Name: The Smuggler’s Way (Robin Hood’s Bay)
The Smuggler’s Way (Robin Hood’s Bay)
(Music and Words: Tim Hunter)

Bring the contraband ashore
They sailed across the windswept North Sea
To bring us tea, gin and brandy
With black sails, undercover of night
They waited offshore for the lantern light
Then, when the coast is clear
The signal brings them near
None for the revenue
And more for me and more for you

Bring the contraband ashore
Forget about the things you saw
It’s the Smuggler’s Way
Down at Robin Hood’s Bay
The Smuggler’s Way
At Robin Hood’s Bay

Brandy for the vicar
And baccy for the clerk
It all comes in undercover of dark
Don’t question what you see,
or things you thought you saw
Just let the men go by
and don’t you ask no more

Then, when the Coast is Clear
The signal brings them near
None for the revenue
And more for me and more for you

Bring the contraband ashore
Forget about the things you saw
It’s the Smuggler’s Way
Down at Robin Hood’s Bay
The Smuggler’s Way
At Robin Hood’s Bay

If you wake at
midnight and hear some people’s feet, Don’t draw back your curtain and look into the street.

Don’t ask no questions and you’ll be told no lies, Look the other way my friend, let the gentlemen go by

Bring the contraband ashore
Forget about the things you saw
It’s the Smuggler’s Way
Down at Robin Hood’s Bay
The Smuggler’s Way at Robin Hood’s Bay
Track Name: Wilberforce
Wilberforce
(Music and Words: Tim Hunter)

Wilberforce – can change the course of history
Only Wilberforce – can stop this evil slavery

You may choose to look the other way
But you can never say you did not know
Great indeed are opportunities;
Great also is our responsibility

Wilberforce – can change the course of history

God Almighty has set before me
Two Great Objectives:
The suppression of the Slave Trade
And the Reformation of Manners. 

Selfishness makes us overate our qualities
And overlook our defects
We are too young to realize
things are impossible...
So we’ll do them anyway.

Wilberforce – can change the course of history
Only Wilberforce – can stop this evil slavery
If to be alive to the sufferings of my fellow creatures, is to be a fanatic, then I’m one of the most incurable fanatics ever permitted to be alive.
Wilberforce – can change the course of history
Only Wilberforce – can stop this evil slavery
(some lyrics based on
Wilberforce’s famous quotes)
Track Name: Dracula (when the sun goes down in Whitby Town)
Dracula (when the sun goes down in Whitby Town)
(Music and Words: Tim Hunter)

When the sun goes down, in Whitby Town
Dracula’s around, When the sun goes down.

When the sun goes down, in Whitby Town Dracula’s around.
He sleeps all day, but when it’s dark
he doesn’t lay, Dracula is looking for prey

Dracula,Dracula

Shipwrecked on the Demeter he came ashore
In the guise of a black dog, wreaking havoc on the town, he has a thirst for blood
When the sun goes down
Dracula, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Dracula,Dracula,

When the sun goes down in Whitby Town
Dracula’s around, when the sun goes down

He gives no reflection in the mirror
Blood is his life, he casts no shadow
Transforms into bat and waits for night

Dracula,Dracula
There’s a look of fear and horror on your face
You might just die of fright
Don’t stray where the bats fly in the night sky
You’re only safe when it’s light

Dracula,
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Track Name: Industrial Revolutions
Industrial Revolutions
(Music and Words: Tim Hunter)

Industrial Revolutions
The Wheel Of Fortune turns around
Bringing Railway tracks to Northern Towns
Industrial Revolutions
The Wheel Of Fortune turns again
Bringing Microchips and social change

We came down from the farms and the hills
To work in Factories and Mills
To be the workshop of the economy
Back then we still had identity

Industrial Revolutions
The Wheel Of Fortune turns around
Bringing Railway tracks to Northern Towns
Industrial Revolutions
The Wheel Of Fortune turns again
Bringing Microchips and social change

The world got smaller through technology
Bringing cheap imports
We closed our factories and fishing ports
And lost control of our borders
Bringing us disorder

The City has become like a foreign place
So it’s back to the country to find some space
OK we’ve got global communication
But we’re losing our sense of nation

Industrial Revolutions
The Wheel Of Fortune spinnin’ too fast
How long can identity last?
Industrial Revolutions, Industrial Revolutions

Put on the breaks, For goodness sake,
How long’s it gonna take
Before we see the downside
Of Industrial Revolutions?
We’re only human beings, not machines
Not meant to live like sardines.
