Thread Name: What does 'Roll and GO' mean?
Subject: RE: What does 'Roll and GO' mean?
"Roll and go" suggests attained momentum but not quite coming to a stop. In US I hear it is a term used to descride not comming to a total stop at a stop sign.
On another thread "Snuffy" says "There certainly seems to be some crossover between "row" and "roll" in the songs of the Liverpool Judies family: Roll, Julia, Roll is there beside Row, Bullies, Row, but I don't recall seeing anything like Rowing Down To Old Maui." There must have been a fair amount of rolling in a sailor's life from the rolling sea to rolling cannons and cannon balls and rolling the old chariot along (and what's that all about?).
