Sabaton History:
========= The Royal Guard LYRICS =========
From the frozen north they came
Fought for founding father’s claim
It was then, their tale, began
Trace their roots from 16 strong
By the king where they belong
En tid
Av Krig
Wherever he goes, near or far, they are close
For the King of Sweden they lay down their lives
For the Swedish crown they stand
By the king, at his command
500 years for the fatherland
Marching across the belt
Crushing blow at Narva dealt
Livgardet our Royal Guard
Sworn protectors of the throne
Royal doctrine set in stone
For the crown, you shall give your life
By traditions from the past
Swedish soldiers stand steadfast
I frid
Och i strid
And if one should fall, yet another, heeds the call
For king and for country they lay down their lives
För Sverige i tiden
Dit konungen går
De gör vad som synes omöjligt, vad än framtiden spår
Still for the crown they stand
By the king, at his command
500 years for the fatherland
Marching across the belt
Crushing blow at Narva dealt
Livgardet our Royal Guard
Recorded and mixed at Black Lounge studios by Jonas Kjellgren.

    In the interest of nitpicking. The firearms in this video are anachronistic. The percussion cap was introduced in the beginning of the 1800s while the Skirmish at Bender that the video seems to depict took place in 1713. Flintlocks would have been the order of the day.
