Wayfaring Stranger is a trandional country song, performed by many artists such as Johnny Cash, Neko Case, Emmylou Harris, Joan Baez and (for the soundtrack of Cold Mountain) Jack White.

The song is generally about death, a man dying and leaving turmoil behind to see his family and beautiful feilds.

You should listen to it. Johnny Cash possibly did the best job of singing it.
I am a poor wayfaring stranger,
Travelling through this world of woe,
There's no sickness, toil or danger,
In that bright land to which I go.

Yes I'm going over Jordan,
Just going, no more to roam,
Only going over Jordan,
Just a-going to my home.
