They came for him one winter's night
arrested, he was bound
they said there'd been a robbery
his pistol had been found.

They marched to the station house
he waited for the dawn
and as they led him to the dock
he knew that he'd been wronged.

"You stand accused of robbery,"
he heard the bailiff say
he knew without an alibi
tomorrow's light would mourn his freedom.

Over the hills and far away
for ten long years he'll count the days
over the mountains and blue seas
a prisoner's life for him there'll be.

He knew that it would cost him dear
but yet he dare not say
where he'd been that fateful night
a secret it must stay.

He had to fight back tears of rage
his heart beat like a drum.
for with the wife of his best friend
he spent his final night of freedom.

Over the hills and far away
swears he will return one day
far from the mountains and blue seas
back in her arms he swear he'll be
over the hills and far away.

Over the hills and
over the hills and
over the hills and far away.

Each night within his prison cell
he looks out through the bars
he reads the letters that she wrote
one day he'll know the taste of freedom.

Over the hills and far away
she prays he will return one day
as sure as the rivers reach the seas
back in his arms he swears she'll be.

Over the hills and far away
she prays he will return one day
as sure as the rivers reach the seas
back in his arms he swears she'll be.

Over the hills
Over the hills
over the hills and far away.

Over the hills
Over the hills
over the hills and far away.
