My Mother's Song title graphic

The Traveller
by Rowena Whaling



I AM A TRAVELLERÖ Through time and space
6000 years of bondage to my raceÖ
The scarlet horse of war has breathed in my face
But donít you worry baby -
Donít you worry about me!

Iíve mothered nations and Iíve healed their lameÖ
Iíve fed and clothed their souls and shared their painÖ
And done it all in somebody elseísí nameÖ
So donít you worry babyÖ
Donít you worry about me!

Iíve been bought Ö Iíve been sold
Iíve been traded for gold
Iíve been loved when Iím young
Cast off when Iím old
Theyíve categorized me  and de-emphasized me
Now they finally say that I have come of age
Iíve come of age

I am the gentle genderÖ Brave and pure.
My heart has ruled a thousand kingsÖ or more
Yet my inheritance has been so poorÖ
But donít you worry baby -
Donít you worry about me!

ÖI am a traveler
Though time and spaceÖ
