Here's a candidate :-)

Bound to Go
(Ian McCalman)

We are some lowland travellers and now we must away
It's hello and goodbye are the words that we must say
We might see you in the spring-time when the streams do melt and flow
So come all good people we're all bound to go

Bound to go
Bound to go
So farewell good people we're all bound to go


The road we've come was hard and long from coast to foreign coast
It's hello and goodbye are the words we'll use the most
We might see you in the autumn when the leaves are falling low
So come all good people we're all bound to go

Bound to go
Bound to go
So farewell good people we're all bound to go


We have laughed and danced and sang a bit, our loves have come and gone
It's hello and goodbye are the words that linger on
We might see you in the winter driving through the sleet and the snow
So come all good people we're all bound to go

Bound to go
Bound to go
So farewell good people we're all bound to go


And when journeying days are over and the salt hangs on us all
It's hello and goodbye are the words that we'll recall
And we'll give a thought to a thousand friends all those we've come to know
So come all good people we're all bound to go

Bound to go
Bound to go
So farewell good people we're all bound to go


This is the version that Davy Steele sings on Ian McCalman's CD Singular.

Best wishes,
