Well the summer sun is shining through the summer showers
We're in Wales so there's always rain around
And we're heading through the bridges at about three miles an hour
Lord, its a long way down
It's a long way down, it's a long way down
Lord, but it's a long way down

Well Thomas Telford built it back in 1805
To take us through to Llangollen town
I admit I can't pronounce it, and I can't spell it either
Lord, but it's a long way down

The summer sun is setting as we head back into Chirk
To find a pub and moor up in the pound
But you've got to admit, it's a hell of a piece of work
But lord, it's a long way down

Some live their lives lost in a world of dreams
And some keep their feet firm on the ground
But I'll take the river, the waterways and streams
But lord, it's a long way down

Now the summer sun is shining through all the summer showers
We're still in Wales so there's still rain around
And we're heading through the bridges at about 3 miles an hour
Lord, but it's a long way down
