Travelling Light

I wrote this song after going through a rough patch in which I had to give up my beloved house and I had to become a council tenant which is something I never thought would happen. However I still considered myself to be lucky when I thought about those who are not so fortunate and end up on the streets. Hence the cover I used for this song.

Lyrics

Travelling Light

That’s the way I’m going

Travelling Light

That’s the way I came

I have no care for many a possession

For wealthy or for poor it’s all the same

When the die is rolled for you there’s not much you can do

One can still be content in life, my son this much is true

Life has its way to drag you down no matter how you try

But you can still live happy and contented ‘til you die

Travelling Light

That’s the way I’m going

Travelling Light

That’s the way I came

I have no care for many a possession

For wealthy or for poor it’s all the same

Life can be so cruel it’s not always fair or kind

You can’t take it when you go. It all gets left behind

Whatever it is life throws at you, I know you can contend

You can still be happy and content  unto the end

Travelling Light

That’s the way I’m going

Travelling Light

That’s the way I came

I have no care for many a possession

For wealthy or for poor it’s all the same

(Repeat)

I have no care for many a possession

For wealthy or for poor it’s all the same.

  1. How horrific. I have heard of similar experiences here in Hull as well. Cannot imagine how awful that must have been. We must all count our blessings. Thanks for sharing that, Clare. 🙂

  2. I love this one, Kevin! It must have been heart-breaking to have to lose your house. I am glad you were able to get a council house; so much better than being on the streets. My mother and her family were bombed out during the war and lost almost everything they had and had to start again, collecting clothes and furniture.
