One More Before We Go        Bill Meek / John Conolly
John Conolly, Ranter's Wharf


We have walked this road a thousand times
God grant us a thousand more
Down all those rolling years to bring
Our music to your door

We've shared the songs and laughter too
Of joys we took our fill
And by the light of the friendly moon
We rolled home singing still

One more before we go, me boys
Let mirth and music flow
In friendship's bond let us rejoice
One more before we go

Oh the amber and the ruby glass
Have warmed both heart and mind
And by the fire of jovial inns
A welcome we would find

Kind voices and kind words we've met
Throughout this pleasant land
A smiling face and an open door
And a clasp from every hand

Chorus

And those who've journeyed far may find
A port in stormy seas
And a haven from the gales of life
To bring their spirit ease

From farm or factory they may come
Those labouring men or kings
To plant their voices and to share
The bond that music brings

Chorus

No sadness shall our burden be
No care shall sit beside
While song and story carry us
Upon their magic tide

And when the hastening hour decrees
Farewells we must bestow
Then all shall raise their glass to join
One more before we go

Chorus
