THE HIKING SONG
As sung by Margaret Kellock

O the wanderlust is on me,
And to-night I strike the trail,
And the morning sun will find me,
In the Lovely Lomond Vale.
Then I'll hike it through Glen Falloch,
Where the mountain breezes blow,
And I'll drum up in the evening,
Through the Valley of Glencoe.

Chorus:
Then swing along to a hiking song,
On the highway wending west,
Tramping Highland Glens and Bracken Bens,
To greet the Isles we love the best.

Islay, Jura, Scarba, Luinga,
Lovely islands of the sea,
Luing and Mull, Colonsay, Staffa,
Coll, Iona and Tiree:
Sgurr of Eigg and Rum and Canna,
With the Minch waves rolling by,
And the heather tinted Coolins
Of the lovely Isle of Skye.

Chorus:
Then swing along to a hiking song,
On the highway wending west,
Tramping Highland Glens and Bracken Bens,
To greet the Isles we love the best.
