The Uist Tramping Song
Chorus: 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!
So gaily sings the lark and the sky is awake,
With the promise of a new day for the road we gladly take.
So it's heel and toe and forward singing fairwell to the town,
And the welcome that awaits us e're the sun goes down.
Its the call of sea and shore; it's the tang of bog and peat,
And the scent of briar and Myrtle that puts magic in our feet.
So it's on we go rejoicing, over bracken over stile,
And it's soon we will be tramping out the last long mile.
