Happy New Year to one and all. Here’s a New Year’s prezzie:
This is a version of Harry Lauder’s “Keep Right on to the End of the Road“, a song that was number one with a bullet in 1918. Edinburgh-born Lauder was the first British singer to sell a million records. He’d surely wallop me with his famous hawthorn walking stick had he heard this version.
Ev’ry road thro’ life is a long, long road,
Fill’d with joys and sorrows too,
As you journey on how your heart will yearn,
for the things most dear to you.
With wealth and love ’tis so
but onward we must go-
Keep right on to the end of the road, keep right on to the end,
Tho’ the way be long, let your heart be strong, keep right on round the bend.
Tho’ you’re tired and weary still journey on, till you come to your happy abode,
Where all you love you’ve been dreaming of will be there at the end of the road.
With a big stout heart to a long steep hill,
We may get there with a smile,
With a good kind thought and an end in view,
We may cut short many a mile.
So let courage ev’ry day,
Be your guiding star alway-
Anyway, get out those fancy pumps and dance!
