Bens And Glens of Scotland

Lyrics composed by John Henderson on the 4th of Sept., 2014,
to Sigmund Spaeth's 1927 music for the song, 'Down South''.

Climb up our Bens, you and your friends
When you visit Scotland's shore;
They'll test your skills, giving you thrills
That you'll have never ever felt before.
In the North-West, where they are best
Choose your routes with utmost care;
Peak after peak, of those you reach
Will profit all you who dare.
Then later .....
Trek through our Glens, you and your friends
When a varied hike you seek;
Some desolate, left to their fate
So seldom chosen by those weak or meek.
Through land less bare, wooded and fair
You'll find sylvan strolls abound;
Rest by their burns' leisurely turns,
And savour the peace you've found.
