first crossing of the day,
I jump into that stream right up to my knees
And hurry on my way.
Ain't gonna stop to untie my shoes
No stones to hop, no time to lose,
So I put my feet right into that creek
And I hurry on my way,
Yeah I hurry on my way
You gotta start with one mile
and then you move to two,
Pretty soon you got that Walkin' Groove
With that lengthy stride that eats up the miles
Over mountains, valleys, over farmers' stiles
Uh-huh, you got that Walkin' Groove.
Scree slopes in the afternoon
got a mountain on my mind.
Loose rocks turning underfoot
So I guess I better take my time.
And then I stop to take in the view
On a mountain-top, there's not a day I rue
On these happy trails cause there's beauty without fail
As I hurry on my way,
Yeah I hurry on my way.
Backcountry Huts in the evening
And they sure are a sight for sore eyes
Gonna take off my pack, kick back and relax,
Maybe build myself a roaring fire.
So I won't stop till I'm through that door,
eat my curry rice, a piece of chocolate or four,
Got a mattress tonight, I know I'll sleep real tight,
Then I'll hurry on my way,
Yeah I'll hurry on my way.
