The lonely minstrelman reached out
To share his music all about
And tell his tales of love gone wrong
In words and notes of each sad song.
He traveled on the dusty road
Undaunted by his heavy load
And brought to those who wished to hear
His songs of war, betrayal, fear.
From town to town he wandered on
The long expected clarion
His voice so strong and deep of sound
The world he knew did gather round.
He earned his keep twas no small task
And answered many questions asked
He watched world history unfold
He was our courier of old !
