I See You've Traveled Some

By Unknown

Wherever you may chance to be
Wherever you may roam,  

Far away in foreign lands; 
Or just at Home Sweet Home;  

It always gives you pleasure, 
it makes your heart strings hum  

Just to hear the words of cheer, 
"I see you've traveled some."  

When you get a brother's greeting, 
And he takes you by the hand,  

It thrills you with a feeling that you cannot understand,  
You feel that bond of brotherhood that tie that's sure to come  

When you hear him say in a friendly way 
"I see you've traveled some."  

And if you are a stranger, 
In strange lands all alone  

If fate has left you stranded 
Dead broke and far from home,  

It thrills you--makes you numb, 
When he says with a grip of fellowship, 
"I see you've traveled some."  

And when your final summons comes, 
To take a last long trip,  

Adorned with Lambskins Apron White 
 and gems of fellowship  

The tiler at the Golden Gate, 
With square and rule and plumb  

Will size up your pin and say "Walk In", 
"I see you've traveled some."
