Lyrics: Farewell, Farewell

Back

Farewell, farewell to you who’d hear

You lonely travelers all

The cold north wind will blow again
The winding road does call



And will you never return to see

Your bruised and beaten sons

Oh I would, I would if welcome I were

For they loathe me every one



And will you never cut the cloth

Or drink the light to be

And can you never swear a year

To anyone but we


No I will never cut the cloth

Or drink the light to be

But I’ll swear a year to one who lies

Asleep along side of me


Farewell, farewell to you who would hear
You lonely travelers all

The cold north wind will blow again

The winding road does call

Richard Thompson
