Woolen Warriors


By Katrusha the Skomorokh
Written as a call and answer waulking song based on waulking songs of Ireland.
Written specifically for a class taught by Siobhan on wool waulking.


Music is a traditional waulking tune. Harmony is for the answer refrain.


We come here from near and far
We are the woolen warriors
Boldly forth we go to war
We are the woolen warriors
Fingers calloused from each stitch
We are the woolen warriors
All the wool that makes us itch
We are the woolen warriors
Looms that clack out like a fight
We are the woolen warriors
We shall clothe your strongest knight
We are the woolen warriors
Here's our wool, we waulk with pride
We are the woolen warriors
And we work it side by side
We are the woolen warriors
We will fight here with our pin
We are the woolen warriors
We will stay strong till we win
We are the woolen warriors
We will make your banner fly
We are the woolen warriors
Rise and watch as we pass by
We are the woolen warriors

We come here from near and far
We are the woolen warriors
Boldly forth we go to war
We are the woolen warriors
We will fight here with our pin
We are the woolen warriors
We will stay strong till we win
We are the woolen warriors
