SILVER JOHN tune: Rosin the Beau 1) You ask me what my name is and what I'm a-doin here they call me John the Wanderer or John the Balladeer Long is the road on which I fare Over the world afar The mountains here and the valleys there Me and this old guitar 2) I've sung at shows and parties I've sung them near and far all up and down and to and fro with my silver-strung guitar 3) Sometimes I travel on busses sometimes I travel on planes sometimes I travel a-walking on country roads and lanes The places I've been were places, yes the things that I've seen were things with this old guitar my soul to bless by the sound of its' silver strings 4) In the homes of the rich and the mighty sometimes I've laid me down sometimes on the side of a mountain or the cold and lonesome ground Nobody here in this little room nobody here but me I'm by myself and I'm with myself and that's how I'm apt to be 5) I've made up my songs and my ballads and sung them both far and near but best of all, I've whispered with only myself to hear Out yonder the sun's a-risin up a-sheddin it's foggy light and on time goes and nobody knows where I'm likely to be tonight all lyrics by Manly Wade Wellman from: "The Lost and the Lurking" and "After Dark"
