The old ways are changing you cannot deny
   C                         F G
The day of the traveler is over
        Am                        C           F
There's nowhere to go and there's nowhere to bide
  C                            F    C
So farewell to the life of the rover

Farewell to the Romany talking
        Am                        C           F
The buying and the selling, the old fortune telling
  C                            F    C
The knock on the door and the hawking
 
CHORUS

Farewell to the creels and the basket
        Am                    C           F
The folks of today they would far sooner pay
  C                            F    C
For a thing that's been made out of plastic

The old ways are passing and soon will be gone
   C                      F G
For progress is aye a big factor
        Am                  C           F
It's sent to afflict us and when they evict us

Farewell to the pony, the cob and the mare
   C                          F G
The reins and the harness are idle
          Am                        C           F
You don't need a strap when you're breaking up scrap
  C                            F    C
So farewell to the bit and the bridle

Farewell to the fields where we've sweated and toiled
   C                         F G
At pullin' and crownin' and liftin'
          Am                        C           F
They'll soon have machines and the traveling queens
  C                            F    C
And their menfolk had better be shiftin'

You've got to move fast to keep up with the times
   C                         F G
For these days a man cannot dander
        Am                        C           F
There's a bylaw to say you must be on your way
