Leaving for Pennsic War


Lyrics: Lorelei Skye            
Music: Leaving on a Jet Plane
            by John Denver




The cars nealry packed, I'm ready to go
I'm standing here trying to fit more
Repacking the car's the next thing I'm gonna try
But the tent is sealed, the garb is sewn
The list is checked, the budget's blown
Already I'm so excited I could fly

So come along and dance with me
Around a bardic fire come sit with me
Where the tiger and the dragon have a row
Cuz I'm packing for pennsic war,
Don't know how I can fit much more
(leaving for Pennsic war),
Just got 1200 miles to go

There are tournaments for the chivalry
Heavy fighters, rapier, and archery
Battles on the fort, field, bridge, and woods
A&S, classes, evening shows,
Chocolate milk, and swimming holes,
Hundreds of merchants who will sell you their fine goods

So come along and dance with me
Around a bardic fire come sit with me
Where the tiger and the dragon have a row
Cuz I'm Driving to Pennsic war,
Don't know how I can drive much more
(driving to Pennsic war),
Just got 600 miles to go

Sometimes it rains, it even floods
There's Pennsic plague and Pennsic muds
But when I'm at home,
that don't mean a thing
Despite the war 'tween the Mid & East
There's parties, music, and campfire feasts
Cuz no matter who wins,
everyone still sings:

(So) come along and dance with me
Around a bardic fire come sit with me
Where the tiger and the dragon have a row
Cuz I'm Driving to pennsic war,
Don't know how I can drive much more
(driving to Pennsic war),
Just got 300 miles to go

Gonna see 10,000 friends
Who welcome me back again
To a place that we just want to be all year
So Dream about those days of yore,
How they nearly drowned at Pennsic 4,
About that time, I'll be nearly there!

So Come along and dance with me
Around a bardic fire come sit with me
Where the tiger and the dragon have a row
Cuz I'm arrivin' at pennsic war,
I Don't have to drive anymore
(arriving at Pennsic war),
Oh look- I'm parked at troll
