Subject: Lyr Add: ROLLING HOME (John Tams)
From: AllisonA(Animaterra)
Date: 07 Jun 99 - 04:22 PM

Thanks to Dai and Liz I am pleased to contribute a great song by John Tams:

Round goes the wheel of fortune, don't be afraid to ride,
There's a land of milk and honey waits on the other side.
There'll be peace and there'll be plenty,
you'll never need to roam,
When we go rolling home, when we go rolling home.

ch: Rolling home, when we go rolling home,
when we go rolling, rolling,
when we go rolling home.

The gentry in their finery do prosper night and morn,
While we unto the fields must go, to plough and sow the corn.
The rich may steal the power, but the glory's ours alone,
When we go rolling home, when we go rolling home.
Chorus

The frost is on the hedgerow, the icy winds do blow,
While we poor weary labourers strive through the driving snow
Their dreams fly up to glory, up where the lark has flown
When we go rolling home, when we go rolling home. Chorus

The summer of resentment, the winter of despair,
The journey to contentment is set with trap and snare
Stand to and stand together, your labour's yours alone
When you go rolling home, when you go rolling home. Chorus

So pass the bottle round, and let the toast go free,
here's a health to every labourer, wherever he may be.
Fair wages now and ever, we'll reap what we have sown,
When we go rolling home, when we go rolling home.

Thank you! I've been looking for those words. There's a great live recording on one of Roy Bailey's CDs, but I had trouble making out the exact words. Now I'll be able to sing along 'properly'. - Susanne

Hello there fellow mudcatters!

I've been singing Rolling Home for ages - a truly great song, brilliant for ending a session with.

But do you know the words as written by "The Kipper Family" titled Rolling Drunk. A parody of the original but still worth singing. Any Ideas?

Cheers, Glen.

Yes, Guest Glen - they're printed in Sid Kipper's book (co-written with Chris Sugden) - The Ballad Of Sid Kipper - available from Sid himself and a snip at £7.95! As well as the words, Sid's tune is somewhat interesting too..... careful when you learn it!

We do this one quite often in our Toronto song circle. Love it.

Sheffield City Mois usually finish trips with this.

It has brought tears to the eye in most western European countries and parts of the Lake District as well.

It was actually written (according to Roy Bailey) for a play at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield.

See also Les Barker's view - people have trouble with the chorus, though!
