Long Time Traveller Lyrics

by Wailin' Jennys

These fleeting charms of earth
Farewell, your springs of joy are dry
My soul now seeks another home
A brighter world on high

I'm a long time traveling here below
I'm a long time traveling away from home
I'm a long time traveling here below
To lay this body down

Farewell, kind friends whose tender care
Has long engaged my love
Your fond embrace I now exchange
For better friends above

I'm a long time traveling here below
I'm a long time traveling away from home
I'm a long time traveling here below
To lay this body down

I'm a long time traveling here below
I'm a long time traveling away from home
I'm a long time traveling here below
To lay this body down, to lay this body down
