I'm looking for the lyrics to Lone Pilgrim, a traditional song sung by Doc Watson at some time. If anyone knows the lyrics I would appreciate them very much. Thanks!

Does it start-----I am a pilgrim, and a stranger, travelin' through this wearisome land? If so,I have them right here. Let me know.

And they are in the DT, look under "I am" in titles.

I think the request refers to the one that begins:

"I came to the place where the lone pilgrim lay..."

not to "I am a Pilgrim."

I probably know those lyrics, but I certainly don't want to type them if there's a choice. Are you sure it isn't in DT?

Peter.

Thanks guys, yes I know the first two lines, I came to the place where the lone pilgrim lay and pensively stood by his tomb- thats all I know. Peter, they are not in the DT, if there was anyway to type them I would greatly appreciate it!

THE LONE PILGRIM

Author: (?)

(Lyrics as recalled by Peter Cady - accuracy not warranteed.)

I came to the place where the lone pilgrim lay,
And pensively stood by his tomb;
When in a low whisper, I heard someone say
How sweetly I sleep here, alone.

The cause of my Master compelled me from home,
No kindred or relative nigh.
I met with contagion and sank to the tomb;
My soul flew to mansions on high.

Go tell my companion and children most dear
To weep not for me, now I'm gone.
The same hand that led me through scenes most severe
Has kindly assisted me home.

The song was recorded by Bob Dylan on «World gone wrong». There's an additionnal verse, between the first and second above. I don't know if it is on the original, but here it is:

The tempest may howl and the loud thunder roar
And gathering storms may arise
But calm is my feeling, at rest is my soul
The tears are all wiped from my eyes

This song is wonderful. I sing it often.

SP

Does anyone have the chords for it?

From a You Tube of one performance it looks like a pretty straight forward 3 chord progression in G but I could have missed something.

THE LONE PILGRIM is a folk-processed version of an older song called THE WHITE PILGRIM. Some information and several versions are contained in this thread: ADD/Origins: Lone Pilgrim.
