Downloaded the song (free) from
Traders of Bokhara
Acoustic rescue. Lots of songs at this site, many unusual.
Sung with guitar accompaniment. Good one.

Would someone like to transcribe the lyrics and post them here?

If not, I might do it myself later.

(Frankly, I just refreshed this thread as a reminder to myself.)

Your heading east for the city of Bokhara
You've got your border papers sealed and signed
By plane and boat and plane You'll be travellin'
A lady with adventure on your mind

I can't make the trip with you this time
I've a job to go to down in Wales
But I'll be looking forward to seeing you the next time
And to hearing all your travelling tales

Dont bring me back no sandals from the market place
Or a carpet from golden Samarkand
Just get on the train or a west bound plane
And come and see me when you land

Say hello to the comrades down on the farm
And the nomads underneath the open skies
But beware the traders of Bokhara
They'll sell you years of Asia with their eyes.

music Ray Davies
lyrics Huw Pudner
recorded by Acoustic Rescue from Neath in South Wales
Hedd Wyn
