Charted: 1 48
  • When you walk through a storm
    Hold your head up high
    And don't be afraid of the dark

    At the end of a storm
    There's a golden sky
    And the sweet silver song of a lark

    Walk on through the wind
    Walk on through the rain
    Though your dreams be tossed and blown

    Walk on, walk on
    With hope in your heart
    And you'll never walk alone

    You'll never walk alone

    Walk on, walk on
    With hope in your heart
    And you'll never walk alone

    You'll never walk alone Writer/s: Oscar Hammerstein II, Richard Rodgers

  • Ls Marie from Phoenix, Arizona UsaWe sang this song at our 8th grade graduation (1964) at St. Joseph's Elementary in southern California. I love the lyrics and have offered them to others experiencing hard times. I have sung it for myself many times to restore my faith that I will do more than survive - so powerful!!!

  • Ricki from Radnor, OhThis song makes an appearance in an episode of Cheers. Carla gets pregnant... again... and the bar takes up a collection to help her out.

  • Eamon from Motherwell, ScotlandTHis song was also made famous throughout the European football circuit by Glasgow Celtic. Gerry Marsden came to Glasgow and sung it in harmony with Liverpool fans when Celtic knocked them out of the UEFA Cup on their way to the final in Seville. Sky TV commented when Celtic fans sung it before the games as "Awe Inspiring!" A moving song with an emotional 60,000 fans - and you have a lethal combination.

    Eamon. Dalziel Park, Motherwell.
  • Teresa from Mechelen, BelgiumWhen I heard this song the first time, I loved it and I still love it; one of the best slows ever made. The voice of Gerry gives an extra value to this beautiful song.
