This Old Road

Edit: Whoops. This one wasn’t supposed to publish until Friday… But with 40 subscribers I guess there’s no take backs! Enjoy this one a little early then, friends, and thanks again for all the support! 🙂



This Old Road

On this road … journeys made … with trust in where it leads…
This old road … this vein of trade … each town upon it feeds…

Traveler turn your eye upon all wayward souls…
Lest yeh ever pass one by who’s worn clean through their soles…

Take the time to offer them a taste of kind respite…
For on a road so long and hard resides many a plight.

Where would you be had you fallen upon a darker twist in fate?
What is it then to share with the lost a warm and hearty plate?

On this road … journeys made … with trust in where it leads…
This old road … carefully laid … a lifeline of our needs…

Traveler turn your eye upon the silky spread of cloud…
Watch for the grays of rainy days in your journey’s shroud…

Take the time to shelter, rest your feet a while…
On a long road the mud may yet beguile…

Let safety and caution rule the days,
Let wisdom win out while urgency preys,
Upon the reckless beneath the sky,
And soon enough you’ll pass them by…

On this road … journeys made … with trust in where it leads…
This old road … true and staid … will know so many deeds…


Also, this is one of a new little series of songs I hope to write… Meant primarily to be the sort you might hear while gathered around a friendly campfire. My hope is that they will be well-suited to just about any fantasy campaign. As a result, I intend to put ‘fireside songs’ under ‘Non-Setting Specific’ so you can find these easier. Again, I hope you enjoy them!
