The Long Trail March - West & Co.

“There’s a long, long trail a-winding Into the land of my dreams, Where a nightingale is singing And a white moon beams." Although these lyrics may seem uncharacteristic for a war song, they are from the chorus of one of the most popular and enduring songs of World War I, "There’s a Long, Long Trail A-Winding". The song had its origins here at Yale, in Connecticut Hall.
