There once was a hero named Ragnar the Red, Bm F# Who came riding to Whiterun from ole Rorikstead! G D And the braggart did swagger and brandish his blade, A E As he told of bold battles and gold he had made! F C But then he went quiet, did Ragnar the Red, Am E When he met the shield-maiden Matilda who said... F C "Oh, you talk and you lie and you drink all our mead! Am E Now I think it's high time that you lie down and bleed!" D A And so then came the clashing and slashing of steel, Bm F# As the brave lass Matilda charged in full of zeal! G Bm And the braggart named Ragnar was boastful no more... G A D When his ugly red head rolled around on the floor!
