Song Lyrics

Poor Wayfaring Stranger


Printer-friendly version of this lyric

I am a poor wayfaring stranger
I'm travelling to this world alone
There is no sickness, no toil, no danger
In the land to which I go

I'm going there to see my father
I'm going there no more to roam
I'm just a-going over yonder
I'm just a-going over home


This curious little gem appears during the closing credits of the movie "Iguana", released in 1988. It's Joni, singing a cappella. The full movie is on YouTube. The wordless portion of the song is sung at the beginning of the movie, and the full song is sung at the end.

Here are the audio clips pulled from the movie:
