Tales of the Vikings Theme Song Lyrics
From out of the North like an icy wind
Came Odin's fair warriors breed
With broadaxe and spear they followed a star
Adventure and glory their need
They conquered the seas in their dragon ships
Fought bravely in many a land
For the Valkyrie maids will come for the man
Who dies with a sword in his hand
