"Midnight Visitor" as written by and Joseph Fidler Walsh....
We were visited last evening
By a servant of the day
He had traveled miles on horseback
To scout his master's way

And he only had a moment
To warm his frozen hands
And though he needed food and rest
He told us of his land

And all too soon
He had to leave
Else sleep might block his way
And so he thanked us both, and saddled up
And softly rode away

And I thought I caught a glimpse of sun in his eye
And wheat field in his smile
And I couldn't help but a-thinking
They would follow in a while

    General CommentJoe Walsh says in his liner notes to "Look What I Did!" that the stong is about Stryder in The Hobbit who is a ranger. However, I believe he is refering to Strider who first is introduced in The Fellowship of the Ring.

    I just read the Hobbit and I don't remember any Stryder or Strider.

    However, let's cut Joe some slack if his memory isn't what it used to be. Close enough.
