Florence + the Machine - Jenny of Oldstones music video from 'Game of Thrones'



Originally sung by Podrick Payne in season 8 of 'Game of Thrones', the song 'Jenny of Oldstones' was recorded by Florence + the Machine for the finale of the show (also featured in this week's episode).

'Jenny of Oldstones' is a song from the actual book series by GRRM, and was about the late wife of Duncan Targaryen (son of Aegon V Targaryen), who gave up his rights to the throne to be with her. Theories are already popping up that the song alludes to the end of the saga, specifically about Daenerys Targaryen.

[Jenny of Oldstones lyrics][Intro]
High in the halls of the kings who are gone
Jenny would dance with her ghosts
The ones she had lost and the ones she had found
And the ones who had loved her the most

[Verse 1]
The ones who'd been gone for so very long
She couldn't remember their names
They spun her around on the damp old stones
Spun away all her sorrow and pain

[Chorus]
And she never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave
Never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave

[Verse 2]
They danced through the day
And into the night through the snow that swept through the hall
From winter to summer then winter again
Til the walls did crumble and fall

[Chorus]
And she never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave
Never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave
And she never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave
Never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave

[Outro]
High in the halls of the kings who are gone
Jenny would dance with her ghosts
The ones she had lost and the ones she had found
And the ones
Who had loved her the most
