Mason Jennings Rudy Lyrics

I was standing by the village gates when I first heard the news
The king had sent his men to seize Gabriel's land
And when Gabriel he refused, the men took both his daughters
And cut the wedding ring fingers from their hands
The next three days I heard three times separate similar stories
The king was taking what was ours for his own
Deep, deep down in the pit of my chest my fear turned to fury
When I thought about my family and my home

Good kind Rudy stood before the king
His mighty sword in his hand
All through the valley we could hear him swing
And a joyful cheer filled the land
Nobody's ever gonna treat us like that again
Late that night all the men in the village
gathered in a clearing in the forest
And we elected Good Rudy to lead us now

He decided right away that the king must die
Every head bent forward as he told us how
We split up into two large groups
and headed for the castle on the hill
My group stormed the front, all the guards came running

Rudy's group snuck up from the back and laid
their ladders up against the castle walls
Nobody ever saw them coming

Good kind Rudy stood before the king
His mighty sword in his hand
All through the valley we could hear him swing
And a joyful cheer filled the land

Good kind Rudy stood before the king
His mighty sword in his hand
All through the valley we could hear him swing
And a joyful cheer filled the land
Nobody's ever gonna treat us like that again
