It's A Long Way Up to the Summit
It’s a long way up to the summit, It’s a long way to go. It’s a long way up to the summit, Through the fields of ice and snow. Good-by to the valleys, Farewell cities fair, It’s a long, long way up to the summit, But I’ll soon be there.
This is an old scouting lyric (ca 1925) based on the popular World War I song, "It's a long way to Tipperari" -- My dad, an early Eagle and then Scouter in Grays Harbor County, Washington, taught us this song for hiking in the 1950s.
