Uist Tramping Song. (Trad)


Come along, come along let us foot it out together

Come along, Come along be it fair or stormy weather

With the hills of home before us and the purple of the heather

Let us sing in happy chorus come along, come along

With the song of the lark the sky is all awake

With the promise of the day for the road we gladly take

So it’s heel and toe forward bidding farewell to the town

For the welcome that awaits us ere the sun goes down

It’s the call of sea and shore It’s the tang of bog and peat

And the scent of brier and myrtle that put magic in our feet

So it’s on we go rejoicing o’er bracken over stile

And it’s soon we will be tramping Out the last long mile
