Thread Name: Lyr Req: Farewell My Friends I'm Bound for Canaan
Subject: RE: canaan's land
I've learned the tune as one verse, sung twice, with the last half repeated & a clap/foot thud at the end of the line you didn't quite get. It's a really nice way to end a good long evening of singing. The version I know is also slightly different. It goes as the same until:
Your company has been delightful, you do not leave my mind distressed.
I go away behind to leave you, (thump) perhaps never to meet again.
But if we never have the pleasure, I hope we'll meet on Caanans Land.
I hope this is what you've been looking for.
