“When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don’t be afraid of the dark
At the end of the storm
There’s a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of the lark”
Written for the 1945 Rodgers & Hammerstein musical Carousel, “You’ll Never Walk Alone” has been recorded by dozens of artists over the years—arguably the most notable being Gerry & the Pacemakers, of Liverpool, England—explaining the song’s famous affiliation with their Football Club.
“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”
As storms rage all around us, here’s Frank Sinatra giving us a few tips on how to get through whatever may come our way.
