• I See You've Traveled Some

    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 the brother's greeting
    and he takes you by the hand,
    it thrills you with a feeling
    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 a strange land, all alone
    If fate has left you stranded,
    dead broke and far from home,
    if a stranger stops and takes your hand,
    it thrills you - makes you dumb,
    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 Lambskin Apron white
    and gems of fellowship.
    The Tiler at the Golden Gate
    with square and rule and plumb
    will size up your deeds and say "Walk in,
    I see you've traveled some."
