Travel Stained Man

The other day I met a tramp
His hair was wet, his clothes looked damp
The poor man seemed hungry and cold
He must have been sixty years old.

You Do Not Have To Travel

From where my life's journey began on the road to elsewhere
I have been in many towns in the big World out there
But of the places i have been to far too many to name
I have found people in most of their ways much the same

My Love Of Travel

So many things in Nature for to write rhymes about
In this varied and wonderful Land of the south
A Land of many colors and amazing scenery
I can only marvel at the beauty every day around me

The Man Who Was Born To Travel

If somebody does write his life's story in book sales it would do quite well
For it would make for interesting reading and thousands of copies would sell

And the wanderlust it is still in him perhaps he'll never settle down

From Ireland They Do Travel Far

They are well known travellers of the big World out there
A person from Ireland one could meet anywhere

They travel to places a long way from home.

And the fog crawl down the mountain on days cold enough to snow
And Finnow swollen by stormwater through the old fields bank high flow.

Does Your Past Travel With You

Does your past travel with you to where-ever you go
In your thoughts do old friends stop by to say hello
Do you go to the pub for the beer and sing song
With you from the past memories have come along

The Born To Travel Man

The lust of the wander in him is still strong
In any one town he feels he don't belong
He has shorn in the big shearing sheds in the wide brown country
And many more places for him for to see,

Farewell To High Tree Travel Towers

Farewell to High Tree Travel Towers I hate these last goodbyes
For the very thought of leaving bring teardrops to my eyes
And though with some of my ex work mates I did not see eye to eye
We did not have much common ground still they are good as I.
