"Fight for Favour" as written by and Seth Bernard Lakeman....
I'll sing you a song how first we began
Our toils and our troubles our plot and our plan
We left our fair country, and all our friends and our homes
Across to the deserts wild and the mountains to roll

We traveled three weeks 'til we came to the platt
Set up our camp ahead of the pack
In just a moment low we heard a faint yell
Five hundred cavalry they were riding from hell

[Chorus:]
We fight for favor
We will fight for pride
And oh we will fight for favor
We will fight 'til they die

They made a bold dash came near to our train
Bullets fell around like showers of rain
With long rifles at hand we fed them hot lead
'Til many a brave warrior fell down, and around us lay dead

[Chorus]

We travel by day but guard in the night
Across all those mountains so high in their might
Now in a green valley we live beside a clear old stream
Our journey now ended, thank god, in the land of our dreams

We fight for favor
We will fight for pride
And oh we will fight for favor
We will fight for our lives
