Hi, newby here. I've been searching the thread archives and the lyrics database, but I cannot find where anyone has actually posted the lyrics to this lovely song! I just heard "Rolling Home" in "Raggedy Rawney", and would love to find either the sheet music or at least the lyrics and chords. Does anyone have them, or know where they are available?

And does anyone know of an actual list somewhere of the songs John Tams has authored? For a man who's only actually "put out" half a dozen or so albums in such a long career, he seems to have written an awful lot of songs!

Thanks!

Lisa

Barb--

Thanks!!! I obviously did not go far enough into the archives to find this thread. Now I"m off to see if I can make the midi/txt conversion program work, and then redevelop the callouses so I can play this on my guitar. Been a long time since I had time or inclination to pick the thing up.

Were you simply playing in Seattle, or are you another mossyback PacNWer?

Blessings!

Lisa, if you saw my post about Rainy Camp, you probably also found this thread on John Tams, right? I am a denisen of the wild wet wood and farmlands of wet western Oregon. Is that soggy enough to qualify as a PNWerner? Sure feels like it today, sigh.
Blessings,
Barbara

Hey, me too! Western Oregon, near heaven on earth if you don't mind 4 feet of rain a year.

If you want more info on John Tams, a friend and I are currently obsessing over the man and his singing. He *finally* is putting out a solo cd, titled "Unity" and released by Topic records in the UK. It will be available April 25, and you can get all the info you want at the Topic website.

As for more John Tams, singing and/or compositions, check out the following cd's:

Alright Jack, The Home Service The Mysteries, The Home Service Early Transmissions, The Home Service Rise Up Like The Sun, Albion Band The BBC Sessions, Albion Band Larkrise to Candleford, Albion Band The Music of Sharpe, Tams, Muldowney, Rusby, Boyes, etc. The Prospect Before Us, Albion Band

If you want a place to start, Alright Jack or Rise Up get my vote. They're a mix of folk, and rock/folk, but he sings lead on both albums all the way through, and they're to die for for that alone. The other albums are fun, too, really fun and well-done every one

And The Tams definitely gets my vote for Sexiest Folk Singer alive!!!!!

I've been singing this song for years and I love it - people are always asking me to sing it, or for the words, who it was written by and where can they find other John Tams stuff.... I'm glad that I can direct them here, where it seems that a fair few other people enjoy the song as much as I do.

All praise to my mother for "giving" it away to me. There's a simplicity in the chorus which allows everybody to join in, but the harmony - whereever I have sung it - has always been totally gorgeous.

Incidently, I learnt it as "The gentry in *his* fine array," but that's the oral tradition for you.

Yours, Rebecca beci_brown@ukf.net
