(As sung by Margaret Kellock)

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's all awake
With the promise of the day,
As the road we gladly take,
So it's heel and toe and forward,
Bidding farewell to the town,
For the welcome that awaits us
Ere the sun goes down.

Thugainn leam, thugainn leam,
O hi ri, 's o ho ro,
Thugainn leam, thugainn leam,
O hi ri, 's o ho ro;
Thugainn leamsa thar na mara
Null do dh'Uidhist bheag nam beannachd
'S gheibh sinn mil ann agus bainne,
'S thugainn leam, thugainn leam.

It's the call of the sea and shore,
It's the tang of bog and peat,
And the scent of brier 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 footing,
Out the last long mile.

Thugainn leam...
