I’ve been playing this song on guitar for a long time. The Wayfaring Stranger is a traditional southern gospel tune that’s been covered by gospel, folk, blues, and bluegrass artists. My version has been through plenty of changes, and if you hear me play the song ten years form now, it will probably sound different than it does here. There are about a dozen different variations on the lyrics floating around and mine is probably an average of several different versions that I heard growing up. Enjoy!
