The Virginia Company

The first half of the opening song "duet", this one introduces us to the English explorers, in particular a certain Captain John Smith. It basically tells us, the audience, in the simplest terms what the English are after, why they're on the trip, and the sort of attitude they're taking on said trip. Also: foreshadowing, dun dun DUN.

For the 2015 Legacy Collection album, this track is combined with the "Ship at Sea" score and the reprise as one track instead of three.

In sixteen hundred seven
We sail the open sea
For glory, God and gold
And The Virginia Company

For the New World is like heaven
And we'll all be rich and free
Or so we have been told
By The Virginia Company
So we have been told
By The Virginia Company

For glory, God and gold
And The Virginia Company

On the beaches of Virginny
There's diamonds like debris
There's silver rivers flow
And gold you pick right off a tree

With a nugget for my Winnie
And another one for me
And all the rest'll go
To The Virginia Company
It's glory, God and gold
And The Virginia Company

Reprise

Men
We'll kill ourselves an injun

John Smith
Or maybe two or three

Men
We're stalwart men and bold
Of The Virginia Company
It's glory, God and gold
And The Virginia Company
