Off to Gulltown
From A Wiki of Ice and Fire
Off to Gulltown are the opening lyrics to an old song. It is unknown if the song has a proper title.
Off to Gulltown to see the fair maid,
I'll steal a sweet kiss with the point of my blade,
I'll make her my love and we'll rest in the shade,
Ser Arlan of Pennytree sang the song while he rode with Duncan the Tall to the tourney at Ashford Meadow in 209 AC. Arlan changed the lyrics to off to Ashford.
A Storm of Swords
Tom of Sevenstreams is singing the song when he, Anguy, and Lem encounter Arya Stark, Gendry, and Hot Pie in the riverlands.
Behind the Scenes
The lyrics be a tribute to "Ho! and off to Thamber Meadow to see the beautiful golden witch" in Jack Vance's Liane the Wayfarer.
