That grand old hill of Werneth Low


Of all the places I have seen , there is not one more fair
Than good old "Wer-neth Low", in fact it is beyond compare.
Its grand to stand on top and gaze on all the country round,
There is no fairer spot on all this earth that can be found.

Chorus
 Come for a blow, on the grand old hill of  "Werneth Low";
You will want to take it easy for it is so bright and breezy;
For miles around there's country to be found;
It's grand you know to have a blow
on good old "Werneth Low".




Chorus (repeat)

And on a moonlight night when there is such a peace profound
the moon shines out in glory, stars are twinkling ,oh so bright
and in delighted wonder , you say
"what a perfect sight".


Chorus (repeat)



It's grand in Spring and Summer when the fields are fresh and green,
and in the Autumn times such wonderous beauties I have seen;
It's even nice in Winter when the snow is on the ground.
On good old "Werneth Low" there's always beauties to be found.


Chorus (repeat)
