Leave your home behind ladA
And reach your friends your handB
And go and luck go with youC
While Ludlow tower shall standB
-
Oh come you home of SundayD
When Ludlow streets are stillE
And Ludlow bells are callingF
To farm and lane and millE
-
Or come you home of MondayG
When Ludlow market humsH
And Ludlow chimes are playingF
The conquering hero comesH
-
Come you home a heroI
Or come not home at allJ
The lads you leave will mind youC
Till Ludlow tower shall fallJ
-
And you will list the bugleK
That blows in lands of mornL
And make the foes of EnglandM
Be sorry you were bornL
-
And you till trump of doomsdayD
On lands of morn may lieN
And make the hearts of comradesO
Be heavy where you dieN
-
Leave your home behind youC
Your friends by field and townP
Oh town and field will mind youC
Till Ludlow tower is downP

A. E. Housman
