What song are these lyrics from -- You take the high road and I'll take the low road?
It's a Scottish song. It's about two Scottish prisoners: one prisoner gets released, and the other prisoner is killed. The song is referring to the fact that, even though he is getting killed, the second prisoner will reach Loch Lomond, and home, first. It's quite a good song; I listen to it quite frequently; it's called Loch Lomond. The full name of the song is "The Bonnie Banks o' Loch Lomond".
Asked in Famous Quotations
Where did the saying take the high road come from?
Could be from the traditional Scottish song, The Bonnie Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond, which begins: By yon bonnie banks and by yon bonnie braes, Where the sun shines bright on Loch Lomond, Where me and my true love were ever wont to gae, On the bonnie, bonnie banks o' Loch Lomond. Oh, ye'll tak the high road, and I'll tak the low road, And I'll be in Scotland afore ye; But me and my true love will never meet again On the bonnie, bonnie banks o' Loch Lomond.
