Traditional patriotic song from the 17th century. 'glacis' v3 = defensive position;
'louped' v5 = the long laces across the chest of the Grenadiers uniform jacket.

Verse 1
G                                  D    G               
Some talk of Alexander and some of Hercules
G                                     D        G
Of Hector and Lysander and such great names as these
G                                           C                G   D
But of all the world’s great heroes there’s none that can compare
       G       D       G       C          G       D     G
With a tow row row row row row row to the British Grenadiers

Verse 2
G                                        D      G
None of these ancient heroes ne’er saw a cannon ball
G                                          D         G
Nor knew the force of powder to slay their foes with all
G                                 C                G    D
But our brave boys do know it and banish all their fears
     G       D       G       C           G       D     G
Sing tow row row row row row row for the British Grenadiers

Verse 3
G                                       D   G
When e’er we are commanded to storm the palisades
G                                        D       G
Our leaders march with fuses and we with hand grenades
G                              C                 G   D
We throw them from the glacis about the enemies’ ears
     G       D       G       C           G       D     G
Sing tow row row row row row row for the British Grenadiers

Verse 4
G                                    D      G
And when the siege is over we to the town repair
G                                         D     G
The townsmen cry hurrah boys here comes a Grenadier
G                                    C                 G    D
Here come the Grenadiers my boys who know no doubts or fears
     G       D       G       C           G       D     G
Sing tow row row row row row row for the British Grenadiers

Verse 5
G                                   D         G
So let us fill a bumper and drink a health to those
G                                       D      G
Who carry caps and pouches and wear the louped clothes
G                                  C               G    D
May they and their commanders live happy all their years
     G       D       G       C           G       D     G
Sing tow row row row row row row for the British Grenadiers
