Ballad of the Oath (translation)
Performed by: Hide Yuuki
Lyrics: Yatsude Saburou
Composition & Arrangement: Watanabe Chuumei
闇深く響く 地獄の足音
墓標の下 眠る父よ
胸に秘めた 非情の運命
さらば友よ 誓いの友よ
俺はただひとり 俺はただひとり
荒野を走る


夕ベの丘に 赤い陽が沈む
愛の日々は まぼろしの夢
わすれてしまえ 花の香り
さらば友よ 誓いの友よ
俺はただひとり 俺はただひとり
荒野を走る

鐘が鳴る時 おとずれる別れ
今は誰も 呼ぶ声はない
明日はむなしい 涙かれて
さらば友よ 誓いの友よ
俺はただひとり 俺はただひとり
荒野を走る

The footsteps of hell, echoing in the deep darkness
Father, sleeping beneath the tombstone
A cruel fate hidden in your heart
Goodbye, my friend, my sworn friend
All alone, all by myself
I will run in the wilderness


The red sun is setting in the hill of sunset
The days of love are phantom dreams
Please forget it, the fragrance of flowers
Goodbye, my friend, my sworn friend
All alone, all by myself
I will run in the wilderness

The farewell that descends when the bell rings
I don’t have the voice to call anyone now
Drying my tears in vain tomorrow
Goodbye, my friend, my sworn friend
All alone, all by myself
I will run in the wilderness

Chikai no Ballad (romanji lyrics)
Performed by: Hide Yuuki
Lyrics: Yatsude Saburou
Composition & Arrangement: Watanabe Chuumei

Yami fukaku hibiku jigoku no ashioto
Bohyou no shita nemuru chichi yo
Mune ni himeta hijou no sadame
Saraba tomo yo chikai no tomo yo
Ore wa tada hitori ore wa tada hitori
Kouya wo hashiru

Yuube no oka ni akai hi ga shizumu
Ai no hibi wa maboroshi no yume
Wasureteshimae hana no kaori
Saraba tomo yo chikai no tomo yo
Ore wa tada hitori ore wa tada hitori
Kouya wo hashiru

Kane ga naru toki otozureru wakare
Ima wa dare mo yobu koe wa nai
Asu wa munashii namida karete
Saraba tomo yo chikai no tomo yo
Ore wa tada hitori ore wa tada hitori
Kouya wo hashiru

I count myself lucky that I even found lyrics for this… Or perhaps it’s because it’s so old that there are lyrics available…
