It's A Long Way Up to the Summit Song



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.


Hiking Song

CommentThis 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.
