Gidiyorum gündüz gece...

This is almost less a Turkish-language question and more a general question for people who know anything about Turkish culture, but I suspect knowing the language helps and I don't know where else to turn. My Turkish is limited to a couple of words/phrases but I've recently fallen in love with Tarkan's music (I know, I know); understanding the lyrics isn't that important to me right now.

One of my favorite of his songs, "Uzun İnce Bir Yoldayım," is actually a very old traditional piece, I've been told. However, I've tried Googling it to figure out the background and this is turning up diddly-squat in English, so basically, I'm just wondering if anyone knows the song's origins, what it means, etc., versus if I've been misinformed and Tarkan just recorded a traditional-sounding song.

Teşekkür ederim!
