Subject: Words and music to ' Wagon Wheels'
From: Shack
Date: 20 May 99 - 11:35 AM

When I was little my uncle sang me a song that went like this: "Wagon wheels, wagon wheels, keep on a-turning, wagon wheels. Roll along, sing your song. Wagon wheels carry me home." Anybody know it?

Sure, Sons of the Pioneers material.

Wagon wheels, rollin' rollin' rollin'
Wagon wheels, rollin' rollin' rollin'
Keep on a turnin, turnin,
Wagon wheels,
Roll along, sing your song,
Carry me over, carry me over the hill.

Go on mule, there's a steamer at the landin',
Waiting for this cotton to load.
Go on mule, the boss is understandin',
There's a pasture at the end of each road.

Then back to wagon wheels... concluding with:
Roll along, sing your song,
Wagon wheels carry me home,
Wagon wheels carry me, (sung deep ala Bob Nolan)
Wagon wheels carry me home. (all together now)

That's all I know of it. Now what was I doing here?....

"Wagon Wheels" was a song sung in the "Ziegfield Follies of 1934," produced by Lee Shubert. The song, sung by Everett Marshall, was written by Wm. J. (Billy) Hill and Peter DeRose.

WAGON WHEELS
(Billy Hill and Peter DeRose)

Wagon wheels, wagon wheels,
Keep on a turnin', wagon wheels,
Roll along, sing your song,
Carry me over the hill.

Go 'long mule, there's a steamer at the landin',
Waitin' for the cotton to load;
Go 'long mule, the boss is understandin',
There's a pasture at the end of the road.

Wagon wheels, wagon wheels,
Keep on a turnin', wagon wheels.
Roll along, sing your song,
Wagon wheels, carry me home,
Wagon wheels, carry me home.

I think there's something wrong with thinking that this is a hokey "Sons of the Pioneers"-type song. G-bless them...BUT, this was sung as a serious piece by none other than Paul Robeson, which is where many of us learned it. Obviously, in his capable hands (voice) it had a much different feel and message to it. Please listen to that recording if you can!

Yes, the Paul Robeson recording is terrific....but in my weaker moments, I really love the Sons of the Pioneers recording.
