I wander 'round to Holds near, far and wide.
The road is fine, the path divine,
I'll e'en traverse a trace,
But when I've arrived here for to stay
My days are full, but the nights are lonely still.
My heart, my heart, it beats in hope of love!
Where can it find a place to rest at ease?
The time I stay fast flows away
And ne'er will I return,
But while I'm here would you indulge me?
The touch of your hand would soothe my heart content!
I am, I am a trav'lin' Harper-man
I wander 'round to Weyrs near, far and wide.
I'll sing a tune just for the room
And time spent near to you.
Come the dawn and again I'll be off,
But the road is fine as a Benden red wine
And I'll never forget you, kind heart.
