Westward Ho!

35395, Children's Songbook, Heritage, Westward Ho!, 217

1. Over the winding trail forward we go.
Westward ho, Westward ho!
The dangers are many; the wagons are slow.
Westward ho, Westward ho!

2. Often we're weary and laden with woe.
Westward ho, Westward ho!
And what we shall find ahead we do not know.
Westward ho, Westward ho!

3. Over high mountains and prairies we go.
Westward ho, Westward ho!
To lands of new promise with hearts all aglow.
Westward ho, Westward ho!

Westward ho! Westward ho! Westward ho! Westward ho! (etc.)
