We ride all alone from the battlefield The rebels beaten they had to yield Banquo and I we silently ride Brothers in arms side by side  There s a fog which falls on the weary soul It engulfs our souls as we head for home The lands we pass we ve never seen Clad in a twilight like a dream  Out of the shade three women rise Appear in features that please the eye How can such grace walk the earth Can it be of human birth  Their eyes glowing with unearthly light Shining like diamonds in the falling night They hail our names as we greet Their voices sound like music sweet
[Bridge:] A Prophecy for great ambitions A promise weaved in gold Evil speaks a pleasant language The Evil speak a pleasant language A Prophecy is told
[Ref.:] Hail Hail Hail Macbeth Thane of Claims and Cawdor and Master of death All Hail Macbeth we greet thee with laughter Hail Macbeth thou shalt be king hereafter  We bid them stay as they did turn More about our fate to learn Too sweet did their visions sound To ambitious men for glory bound  They turned to Banquo and hailed his name Revealing to him the greatest fame My brother listened pleased and well To the promises they had to tell
[Ref.:] Hail Banquo hail to thee Lesser than Macbeth yet greater thou It be Father of a line of kings to come Hail to Banquo the chosen one
