Thread Name: What does 'Roll and GO' mean?
Subject: RE: What does 'Roll and GO' mean?
The phrase also turns up in Where Am I To Go, Me Johnnies (at least, the version I like to do). It's in the verses and the chorus:

"Way, hey hey, way the roll and go."

Now, "way" might conceivably be "weigh" - I don't know. But, I was never able to figure out the meaning from the song's context.
