Songs About Walking: SA No. 19

Here are a couple of songs about one of our favourite things to do-especially when it’s warm and sunny and you have to trudge up a massive hill or force yourself into a freezing pool of mountain run-off water at the end of it! Dave and I did a lot of walking while we were away these past two weeks, so it seemed the natural choice of subject. As always, we’re also on the lookout for new and challenging topics, and we’d love it if you let us know what you think. Have you ever written a song about walking? http://songassignment.wordpress.com/
