Well, well... The one I remember is "Rolling home, rolling home, rolling home across the sea. Rolling home to dear New England, rolling home, fair land to thee."

breezy, the wanted lyrics have already been supplied, and can be seen by clicking on the blue words in Dai's post above. (Whenever you see words hightlighted like that, it's worth clicking on them, just to see what happens...)

The song in question was written by John Tams.

Mrrzzy, the one you mentioned is "I've Got Sixpence". I'd bet most folks know it. Here's just a taste to jog the memory--I'd bet you can fill in the blanks.

I've got sixpence, jolly jolly sixpence, I've........

I've got two pence to spend, and two pence... (that's how we always pronounced it in the states!)

No cares have I to grieve me, no pretty little girls...

Rolling Home, rolling home, Rolling Home, rolling home, by the light of the silvery...

'Sorry Noreen, it wasn't written by John Tams (or anyone else that we know of for that matter). Stan Hugill has five pages on the song, albeit mostly the Shanty version,(which would turn out to be very long!) But he credits Captain W B Whall as finding it and sure enough it's there on Page 9 of his book 'Sea Songs and Shanties' which was first published in 1910 and he found it in an American book of sea songs published in 1876.

I've been singing it for years as a great 'closing' song and I was originally inspired by the singing of Johnny Collins and Jim Magean.

One interesting anomily tho', the tune is given in the book is given as 3/4 time when I have never heard it sung in anything other than bog standard 4/4. Rolling Home in waltz time....?

Regards

Apologies if I'm wrong about this, but I gather you can't send a personal message to a GUEST?

So Breezy, if you're still there,I'd like to know more about the event in Harpenden (assuming this is Harpenden near where I live!). If this is a public do, can you or anyone else tell me or point me to more info?

The song requested by CharlieA is I think the one Noreen mentioned, and was written by John Tams for a theatrical production.

Its title is "Rolling Home", as distinct from the shanty "Rollin Home".
