A Distant Land To Roam
Recorded by Ralph Stanley
Written by A.P. Carter

I remember very well

On one dark and dreary day

Just as I was leaving home
G7 C
For a distant land to roam

Mother said (mother said)

My dear boy (my dear boy)
I hope to see you next year again
Fare thee well (fare thee well)

Fare thee well (fare thee well)

So I left my dear old home
G7 C
For a distant land to roam

Now I wandered far away

From my home I’ve gone astray

Now I’m coming coming home
G7 C
Never more from thee to roam

Repeat #2

And these words she said to me

As she took me by the hand

If on earth we meet no more
G7 C
May we meet at God’s right hand

Repeat #2
