The open road unrolling
And you in reach beside me

And a very chatty monkey
Fast asleep behind me

And the mountains rose before us
Noble brass for the chorus

And we talk of country kindness
As we put some miles behind us

And I guess we'll get to Inverness tonight
And I've lined a piper up just to make you cry
And the moon shows up to roll around our sky
And I've never been so sure
That I was right where I should be
In my whole life

Oh, I didn't see you coming
But now I'm nowt without you

You're the cooling glassy water
That feeds the trees about you

And the only road I know now
Is you and I together

And the little heart we started
Picks up that beat forever

And I guess we'll get to Inverness tonight
And I've lined a piper up just to make you cry
And the moon shows up to roll around our sky
And I've never been so sure
That I was right where I should be
In my whole life
And I've never been so sure
That I was right where I should be
In my whole life

Still widely used by almost everyone in the northern half of England (Yorkshire, Manchester, Lancashire, etc.)

Cool observation! 
Note: this word still exists in the modern English "naught".

Somehow sounds age-wise.
Melting my old ❤ too:)
