Faint And Wearily


A song by Samuel Arnold (1740-1803) from a 1794 ballad opera called "The Mountaineers"

The first verse runs thus:

Faint and wearily the way-worn traveller, Plods uncheerily afraid to stop Wand'ring drearily, a sad unraveller Of the mazes toward the mountain top Doubting fear while his course he's steering Cottages appearing as he's nigh to drop Oh! how briskly then, the way-worn traveller Treads the mazes toward the mountain top

Words from "The Goldfinch - A New Modern Songster" Circa 1800. The lyrics do not appear in the Buttrey Manuscipt
