This is about the archetypal Troubadour, who walks the Road of ages,
and often acts as Heaven's Messenger.


THE OLD WAYFARER

In a time of trouble, he walked the land,
guitar on his arm, heart in his hand.
He sang to the people wherever he came,
and the message was always the same :

Chorus
"Love one another and help where you can.
You don't have to yield to liars and cheats,
but give a good chance to woman, and man,
children, and four-legged creatures you meet.
If any betray you, walk on your way,
they have a Judge, Upstairs.
Try to be faithful, day by day,
and remember the lost in your prayers."

No-one is sure where he's wandering now.
The world is his home, and always somehow,
wherever he is, is where he belongs.
Wherever he is, he's singing this song.

Chorus
"Love one another and help where you can.
You don't have to yield to liars and cheats,
but give a good chance to woman, and man,
children, and four-legged creatures you meet.
If any betray you, walk on your way,
they have a Judge, Upstairs.
Try to be faithful, day by day,
and remember the lost in your prayers."
