Looks like the lyrics at least are the work of J.B.Goodenough

Parting Song (Journey's End)   J.B. Goodenough

The fire is out, the moon is down, the parting glass is dry and done,
And I must go and leave this town, before the rising of the sun.
And long’s the road and long’s the mile
Before I rest my soul again
With girls who weep and girls who smile
And all the words and ways of men

For some there are who cannot bide, but wander to the journey's end,
Nor take a girl to be a bride nor have a man to be a friend.
And when I'm done with wandering,
I'll sit beside the road and weep,
For all the songs I did not sing, and promises I did not keep.
