Te Araroa Trail song

24th Jan – I went to bed so early last night that I woke up before light enough to pack up so decided to write a song for the TA trail. Very early draft you understand, comments and suggestions most welcome

Tune is to the “this land is your land this land is my land”

(Verse 1 and chorus)

This trail is your trail, this trail is my trail
From Cape Reinga to to the bluff in Southland
This trail is made for you and me

Through Kauri forest, across beach and farmland
Through townships and cities too
This trail is waiting here for you

(Chorus)

Up peaks and down valleys, In clear streams and rivers
through muddy mangrove and swampy scrub
Natures finest is here for you to see

(Chorus)

In bright sunshine, in rainy downpour
in shady glades and on windy ridge
All seasons in just one day

Chorus

You’ll meet great people, you’ll make new friends
Grow as a person, and get fitter too
This trail is something you must do!

(all together now)

This trail is your trail, this trail is my trail
From Cape Reinga to to the bluff in Southland
This trail is made for you and me
