Steemit Open Mic week # 103 "I AM A Pilgrim"steemCreated with Sketch.

in openmic •  last year  (edited)

I will play an old gospel tune called "I Am A Pilgrim" for this week's Open Mic.It's a song I used to play some years ago in normal tuning. Then I sort of forgot about it for a while but recently I took it out of my memory drawers, dusted it out and put it into DADGAD tuning.

It will probably be the last of my posts for some time as I am going to Himalayas for at least 2 months for some trekking and I am afraid there will not be any internet connection available. But as soon as I can I will be back with some new music and maybe some Himalayan stories and pictures...


I Am A Pilgrim

I am a pilgrim and a stranger
Traveling through this wearisome land
And I’ve got a home in that yonder city, good Lord
And it’s not (good Lord it’s not) been made by hand

I got a mother, a sister and a brother
Who have gone to that sweet home
And I am determined to go and see them, good Lord
Over on (good Lord over on) the other side

When I've been walking down to that river of Jordan
Just to bathe my weary soul
If I could just but touch the hem of His garment, good Lord
I believe (good Lord I believe) that would make me whole

Now when I’m laying in my coffin
All of my friends all gather round
They can say that he is just laying there sleeping, good Lord
Sweet peace (good Lord sweet peace) his soul is found

You’re such an amazing musician ❤️ I’m sad I won’t get to listen to your music posts for a while, but I hope you have a fantastic time in the Himalayas. I’ll be eagerly awaiting your new photos and songs ❤️

Oh thank you! You are so nice and kind to me! Actually I am missing some new music by you. It's been a-while. Nice swinging though!


Wow enjoy that beautiful peace and awsome energy! Iv’e only experience the himalyas from the foothills but someday soon I’ll get up there i hope. Great playing brother.

Thanks shookriya! I will enjoy for sure. Himalayas are like magnet for me. I'm fortunate enough to get to go there almost every year.

Congratulations @shephard! You received a personal award!
