Pull Together

Words and music by Robbie Smith

High on a hill my heart is searching
For my brother as he marches on his way
All the world seems to glisten and to smile at his returning
Oh, how we’ve yearned for the day when he’d say

How’s the farm and how’s the family?
It’s been much too long since I ventured back this way
There were times when I thought I’d never see this blessed valley
But now I’m home – home to stay

And we’ll pull, we’ll pull together
We’ll work for the sake of getting something done
Yes, we’ll pull, we’ll pull together
We’ll help one another – aye, together we’ll pull as one

Instrumental

And as for me, I’ve been saving all my wages
For a horse and a plough and a piece of decent land
No, there’s no need to coax me – I’ve been planning this for ages
And now, with heart and with hand

We will pull, we’ll pull together
We’ll turn this muddy ground into a golden field of corn
Yes, we’ll pull, we’ll pull together
And gaze upon a harvest as we rise up in the early morn

Instrumental

And now, as we gather ’round this table
With a toast to be pledged and a future to be planned
We’re a clan re-united and for that we’re truly grateful
And for as long as we can

We will pull, we’ll pull together
We’ll work for the sake of getting something done
Yes, we’ll pull, we’ll pull together
We’ll help one another – aye, together we’ll pull as one
Yes, we’ll help one another and together we’ll pull as one!
