JOAN BAEZ lyrics - Old Welsh Song

JOAN BAEZ
"Old Welsh Song"
(H. Treece)

I take with me where I go a pen and a golden bowl;
Poet and beggar step in my shoes, or a prince in a purple shawl.
I bring with me when I return to the house that my father's hands made,
A crooning bird on a chrystal bough and, o, a sad, sad word!
