The Journeyman

albiet, i am but a journeyman
my life is that of the road
there where times and there were days
when life seemed too heavy a load...

a lass
a lady
a love of my life
i wanted her
i needed her
i asked her 'be my wife'
in her town many days did i stay
til she laughed and said
'n'er we'd come outta bed'
and i stood there as she walked away...

a toil
a pain
my poor mother's sad death
a loss
a shame
i stole her last breath
that time that i took mother's gold
they wept when they found
her body underground
but i still say that lady was too old...

my time
my life
my heart's weakened for sure
my glory
my yearning
i've always wanted more
as a lad i'd dream of ruling the world
money, ladies and love
i knew came from above
but God'd thrown me, to the devil i hurled

so as a journeyman i've got no story to tell
the road is my home
no seeds have i sown
and everything is wonderful down here in hell!

Your poetry is always very gripping, and this one is no different Mr Fish.

thanks for sharing this one Adam

i've always wanted more
as a lad i'd dream of ruling the world
money, ladies and love
i knew came from above
but God'd thrown me, to the devil i hurled


how many have sung that song in the last two thousand years or so? and that last line is as good as I've heard it sung
