The song was originally composed in 1945 as a show tune for the Rodgers and Hammerstein's musical "Carousel".

Lyrics[]

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
