The West Highland Way lyrics

When the summer comes again
And there's music in the glen
For the sun has sent ole winter far away
 
And the mavis with his song
Tells me there's where I belong
Stepping out on the West Highland Way
 
I'll be there, I'll be there
Be it cloudy or fair
Far away from the city, far away from care
 
And with every mile I say
How I bless the happy day
When I first took the West Highland Way
 
Setting out from Kelvingrove
To the North Fortevoit Road
By Mulguye and on to Bremen and the west
 
Soon Loch Lomond's there below
By her bonnie banks I'll go
With a song sounding sweetly in my breast
 
I'll be there, I'll be there
Be it cloudy or fair
Far away from the city, far away from care
 
And with every mile I say
How I bless the happy day
When I first took the West Highland Way
 
By McGregor Hunts I'll come
By Glen Falloch and Tyndrum
By Glen Orchy, and by Ranoch, and Glen Coe
 
Names that ring in history
And the echo follows me
To the north where the Levan waters flow
 
I'll be there, I'll be there
Be it cloudy or fair
Far away from the city, far away from care
 
And with every mile I say
How I bless the happy day
When I first took the West Highland Way
 
Aye, and in while the path will come
Over many an English pond
Through Lochaber to Fort William it will wind
 
Where Ben Nevis greets the sun
Their my highland way is done
But the beauty is ever in my mind
 
I'll be there, I'll be there
Be it cloudy or fair
Far away from the city, far away from care
 
And with every mile I say
How I bless the happy day
When I first took the West Highland Way
