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

They marched him to the station house
He waited for the dawn
And as they led him to the dock,
He knew that he'd been wronged

"You stand accused of robbery,"
He heard the bailiff say
He knew without an alibi
Tomorrow's light would mourn his freedom

    Over the hills and far away
    For ten long years, he'll count the days
    Over the mountains and the seas,
    A prisoner's life for him there'll be

He knew that it would cost him dear,
But yet he dare not say
Where he had been that fateful night,
A secret it must stay

He had to fight back tears of rage
His heart beat like a drum
For with the wife of his best friend
He spent his final night of freedom

    Over the hills and far away
    He swears he will return one day
    Far from the mountains and the seas
    Back in her arms he swears he'll be
    Over the hills and far away
    
Each night within his prison cell,
He looks out through the bars
He reads the letters that she wrote
One day he'll know the taste of freedom

    Over the hills and far away,
    She prays he will return one day
    As sure as the rivers reach the seas
    Back in his arms he swears she'll be
    
    Over the hills and far away
    He swears he will return one day
    Far from the mountains and the seas
    Back in her arms he swears he'll be
    
    Over the hills and far away
    She prays he will return one day
    As sure as the rivers reach the seas
    Back in his arms is where she'll be
    Over the hills and far away
