German meaning:

Das Lied behandelt die Mühsal der Erdenwanderung zwischen Armen und Reichen, 
die eines Tages mnit der Reise über den Jordan ein Ende nehmen wird.

I'm just a lonely and a lonesome traveller;
Well, I am a lonely and a lonesome traveller;
I am a lonely and a lonesome traveller,
I'm just travelling home.

Travelled with the rich, and I've travelled with the poor,
I've travelled with the rich, I've travelled with the poor,
Travelled with the rich, and I've travelled with the poor,
I'm just travelling home.

I travel here and then I travel yonder,
I travel here and I travel yonder,
I travel here and then I travel yonder,
I'm just travelling home.

One of these days I'm gonna give up my travelling,
One of these days I'm gonna give up my travelling,
One of these days I'm gonna give up my travelling,
And I'm travelling home.

I'm just a lonely and a lonesome traveller;
Well, I am a lonely and a lonesome traveller;
I am a lonely and a lonesome traveller,
I'm just travelling home.

I travelled cold and then I travelled hungry,
I travelled cold and then I travelled hungry,
I travelled cold and then I travelled hungry,
I'm just travelling home.

One of these days I'm gonna give up my travelling,
One of these days I'm gonna give up my travelling,
One of these days I'm gonna give up my travelling,
I'm just travelling home.
