I know you're both busy, so I've taken a stab at it. In a few places I went to another performance of the song by a music teacher who seemed to have been reading some lyrics from a lead sheet, so I'm presuming her lyrics are accurate. ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5fdu3MmstmY ). BTW, this is a beautiful song, and thanks for opening that door. The song has four stanzas, each followed by the same refrain. The title is 'Welcome Here Kind Stranger', written by Tommy Sands.

Welcome Here Kind Stranger (by Tommy Sands)

Well, you're welcome here kind stranger
And won't you stay a while
I know that you're a rover
And ramble a lonely mile
But friendship and good company
Can ease a weary mind
You're welcome here kind stranger
For to lay your bundle down

CHORUS Come lay your bundle down
Come lay your bundle down
You're welcome here kind stranger
For to lay your bundle down

And do you come from a far-off land
Across the rolling sea
To where our sons and daughters sailed
In sorrow and in grief
And maybe you're the child of one
Who's left this lovely shore
Good friend and kind relation
You're welcome home once more

CHORUS

Here's a song you can take along
For the morning sun to shine
A story too for your journey to
Shorten the wintertime
We'll fill the cup and we'll/as we(??) drink a sup
That good fortune will abound
You're welcome here kind stranger
For to lay your bundle down

CHORUS

They say the whole world is changing
And that we are changing too
To bid a soul the time of day
It seems so hard to do
But what's the worth of a gold(en??) purse
That can hold ten thousand pounds
If there is no place for a fond embrace
And to lay your bundle down

CHORUS Come lay your bundle down
Come lay your bundle down
You're welcome here kind stranger
For to lay your bundle down

RPT CHORUS

NB The double question marks indicate where I'm not sure of the lyric(s) so I guessed.

Solid start Starship, thanks for that. I've finally found a patch of free time.

For "We'll fill the cup and we'll drink a sup" I heard the first option, and I heard "golden purse" for the second one.
