The Christmas Traveller lyrics

by The Irish Rovers

Ha la la la la la la la le - Ha la la la la la le lu-jah
Ha la la la la la la la le - Ha la la la la la le lu-jah
Ha la la la la la la la le - Ha la la la la la le lu-jah
Ha la la la la la la la le - Ha la la la la la le lu-jah

When I was afar one winters day I took my TV 'neath the tree
A fire to keep the cold away and a pint for hungers yearning
When A boy appeared up yonder road a most peculiar sight to see
He danced and he sang and he clapped his hands with a story of good tidings
Come and sit besides the fire I called to this young man
What can bring such joyfulness I could not understand
His smile outshone the fire and he looked me in the eye
And he danced and he sang and he clapped his hands and gave me this reply
He sang...

Ha la la la la la la la le - Ha la la la la la le lu-jah
Ha la la la la la la la le - Ha la la la la la le lu-jah
Ha la la la la la la la le - Ha la la la la la le lu-jah
Ha la la la la la la la le - Ha la la la la la le lu-jah

I sat beneath the sky that night beyond imagination
And from the sky a star of light directed destination
In all my curiosity I followed without waiting
Shepherds I met on the way were standing dumbly quaking
Then we heard a message and there seemed some glorious things
An angel has appeared to us so bright with golden wings
A story of a baby who on this night is born
A king of all the kingdoms our shelter from all storms
They sang...

Ha la la la la la la la le - Ha la la la la la le lu-jah
Ha la la la la la la la le - Ha la la la la la le lu-jah
Ha la la la la la la la le - Ha la la la la la le lu-jah
Ha la la la la la la la le - Ha la la la la la le lu-jah

When I arrived in Bethlehem the star was brightly shining
Into a manger I could see a mother and her child
Three men of stately origin with precious gifts were bearing
They knelt before the new born king in a holy light I saw
A kingdom for the loving he has come to lead us to
The son of man is living now can you feel it too
I scarcely can believe my ears the joy is in my heart
For god has heard his peoples needs and gave a brand new start
They sang...

Ha la la la la la la la le - Ha la la la la la le lu-jah
Ha la la la la la la la le - Ha la la la la la le lu-jah
Ha la la la la la la la le - Ha la la la la la le lu-jah
Ha la la la la la la la le - Ha la la la la la le lu-jah

Ha la la la la la la la le - Ha la la la la la le lu-jah
Ha la la la la la la la le - Ha la la la la la le lu-jah
