Uist Tramping Song

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,

  1. So gaily sings the lark,
    And the skyīs all awake
    With the promise of the day,
    For the road we gladly take,
    So itīs heel and toe and forward
    Bidding farewell to the town,
    For the welcome that awaits us
    Ere the sun goes down.
    Chorus : ---
  2. Itīs the call of sea and shore,
    Itīs the tang of bog and peat,
    And the scent of brier and myrtle
    That puts magic in our feet;
    So itīs on we go rejoicing,
    Over bracken, over stile;
    And itīs soon we will be tramping
    Out the last long mile.
    Chorus : ---
