A wee song about a Truck drivers thoughts on the road from Perth to Thurso, with poetic license of course.

Words
4 and a half hours tae Thurso town
4 and a half hours tae Thurso.
fareweel tae Perth and its fair maids
its race horses and tartan plaids
theres mony a mile and many a glade
in 4 and half hours tae Thurso

4 and a half hours tae Thurso town
4 and a half hours tae Thurso
wind and rain an thunder clap
the engine roars the wipers slap
passed Pitlochry`s tourist trap
am 4 and half hours tae Thurso

4 and a half hours tae Thurso town
4 and a half hours tae Thurso
shin be seein Inverness
and the capercallie build its nest
whaur the hielan army wis laid tae rest
am 4 and half hours tae Thurso

4 and a half hours tae Thurso town
4 and a half hours tae Thurso
16 gears rax up and down
as the eighteen wheels gae round and round
nearer tae the wifies froon
4 and half hours tae Thurso

4 and a half hours tae Thurso town
4 and a half hours tae Thurso
I leave the black Isle in the dark
the wifie sometimes likes tae nark
say`s drive tae Dunnet heed and park
aye 4 and half hours tae Thurso

4 and a half hours tae Thurso town
4 and a half hours tae Thurso
wish ma feet wir oan my ain hearthstane
wi the auld peat fire oan my banes
but I`m roarin through the sleet and rain
fur 4 and half hours tae Thurso
