Over The Hills And Far Away

Lyrics

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

Genesis, why is she a slut? Obviously she isn't if she'll wait for him as the song tells us.

He is sleeping with his best friend's wife. She is a slut. I think the friend found out and planted the pistol. Great music. Crappy lyrics..

Love how it's a story. At first I didn't notice but then I read the lyrics and now it's ten times more epic.

This song got me back into Nightwish. I miss this style in their later works. Not that the later albums are bad, but they are missing something.

sooooooo good, arguably my favorite song by nightwish.

I have always loved story songs and this is one of my favorites!

Ever since I first heard this version from Nightwish, I have loved this song. The lyrics are beautiful, the layering of the voices makes this already great song even better. Add in the music with a Celtic feel and it becomes epic.

Pandora has made it possible to find the music I love in other countries. Often many talented bands are overlooked in the states. Love Nightwish

Easily my favorite song right now. Can't stop listening to it :)

Hmm... interesting, in addition to this cover and other cover of Gary Moore's and the original, there are three other songs titled "Over the Hills and Far Away" with different lyrics according to Wikipedia, which I verified by other sources. Quite a popular name for a song and yes, this is an excellent cover.

I can now say Nightwish did this song justice.
both this cover and the original (by Gary Moore) are excellent.

NOT JUST ANOTHER WIN, ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF HOW THEY ARE FULL OF WIN!
