Ballad of the Fighting Browncoats Sung to Great Big Sea’s The Chemical Worker's Song (Process Man)

Well Browncoat men were we and I'm tellin' you no lie We fought and died among the fumes that tread across the sky There was thunder all around us and there was poison in the air There was a lousy smell that smacked of hell and blood all in our hair

Chorus: And its hold boys hold They'll time your every breath And every day you’re in this place you’re two days nearer death But you hold.

Well we fought along the valley and we breathed the oily smoke We piled up the dead and it neigh 'on made us choke We stood knee deep in dyin’ friends, got sick with a caustic burn Been fightin’ rough, we've seen enough, to make your stomach turn

[Chorus]

Were outta time and had used up all the ammunition store But Browncoats like our freedom, so we all went back for more And even tho’ we lost some ground, we gave it all we could For every foot of ground they took, they paid with flesh and blood

[Chorus]

Now an engine man am I and I'm telling you no lie I tweaks and tunes among the fumes that tread across the sky There's thunder all around me and there's poison in the air There's a lousy smell that smacks of hell and brimstone all in me hair

The Old Girl
A Firefly/Battlestar Galactica old and new crossover that I've been toying with for some time now. Not sure if it's on the mark character wise, or worth finishing. Please let me know.
Also, I've used 'shepard' as a description for Book, but would holyman or preacher be applicable? Seems to me Jayne would call him something other than shepard.

Inspired by the Sereni-Tree thread and the wonderful writers that frequent it. And TheRealMe, his talent and work is what keeps that thread together.
This is a condensation of the action from that thread leading up to Boros Bound.
