The Old Traveler Jim

His traveling days over the man from elsewhere
Sixty years ago he went to see life in the big World out there
Without the responsibility of children or wife
He is one who enjoyed the nomadic style of life
But six decades of traveling enough for the old traveler Jim
Age, hard work and traveling has taken most of the energy from him
He is happy to live in the old country town
Of south west Victoria known as Camperdown
Tall and gray haired in his early eighties a regular sight
In his local pub on a Saturday night
He has worked in many a town been through many a countryside
In a life of adventure he has traveled far and wide
From his first home he is aging far away
In Camperdown he will live his last night and day.
