Chord transcription by Mikayel Abazyan mikayelabazyan@yahoo.com


INTRO: E    F    G    A

VERSE:
Em              F
  Sunday night,   twelve weeks before winter,

G                     A
  the world is in a smoke haze.

Em                          F
  Suddenly there appears a rider in the East

C               D
  brandishing flame.


CHORUS:
A                  G
  "I ride an icy stallion,

                     A               G
fire at each end and   poison at the   center -

B                               F#m
  you won't hear my words as scream into the darkness:

E                       G
  his plans are like a firebrand,

A                       G
  his plans are like a firebrand!"


VERSE:
He rides on into the wintry darkness,
and brandishes his flame like a spear;
below him there races his ghost steed,
draping the night in fear.

CHORUS:

VERSE:
His steed strains as he reaches out over the reins
and hurls his flame at the West...
the mountains dissolve in fire
and he races through them, screaming:

CHORUS:


  A
Njal, beware !

F                      G                     A  G  A
  (and) Heed the words   which emanate from Hildiglum !
