[C]As I went a [Dm]walking one [G7]morning in [Em]spring
I [Am]met with some [Dm]travellers in an [G7]old country [C]lane
One was an [Dm]old man, the [G7]second a [Em]maid
And the [Am]third was a [Dm]young boy who [G7]smiled as he [C]said.

Chorus

With the [F]wind in the [C]willows and the [F]birds in the [C]sky
We’ve a [F]bright sun to [C]warm us wher[Dm]ever we [G7]lie
We [C]have bread and [Dm]fishes, and a [G7]jug of red [Em]wine
To [Am]share on our [Dm]journey with [G7]all of man[C]kind.

I sat down beside them the flow’rs all around
And we ate on a mantle spread out on the ground
They told me of prophets and princes and kings
And they spoke of the one God who knows everything.

Chorus

I asked them to tell me their name and their race
So I might remember their kindness and grace
My name is Joseph, this is Mary my wife
And this is our young son our pride and delight.
We travelled the whole world by land and by sea
To tell all the people how they might be free.

Chorus
