Poor Wandering One


Poor wandering one
With such poor love as mine
Can help thee find
True peace of mind
Well take it, it is thine

Take heart; no danger lowers
Take any heart--but ours!

Take heart, fair days will shine
Take any heart--take mine

Fa la la la la la la la
Fa la la la la la la la
Fa la la la la la la la
Fa la la la la la la la
la la la la la la la . . .

[Feuding Banjos, composed by Arthur "Guitar Boogie" Smith & Don Reno, a.k.a Dueling Banjos]

Poor wandering one
Though thou hast surely strayed
Take heart of grace
Thy steps retrace
Poor wandering one
