While on the road, Mat Cauthon begins the song. Egwene al'Vere, Rand al'Thor, and Perrin Aybara all join into the song. The song is about the nation of Manetheren and it's fall. After the villagers finish the song, Moiraine tells them the history of the nation that the song is about.
We walk the footsteps of our fathers
The trail blazed by our mothers
They bought the land with their blood
Sing of Manetheren
Weep for the blood of Aemon
Cry for Manetheren
