jofield Lyr Req: Rollin' Home (sea song) (44) Rollin' Home 13 Jan 00

I was visiting with some musician friends on Carriacou in the Grenadines, W.I., and they sang a great repertoire of songs: Jimmie Rodgers, C&W, etc., as well as one sea-chanty sounding tune with this in the chorus:

Rollin' home, rollin' home,

---- ---- ---- ---- [can't remember]

Rollin' home to old New England...

I think it was a whaling song, taught to these guys by their aged mother (who was there), but it could well have been learned of an old 78-rpm record.

Ring a bell to anyone?
