Does anyone know a song that starts:Wish I was in southland,sitting in a chair...one arm round my old guitar,the other round my dear....Chorus:I'm rolling on,just rolling on,I'm rolling on through life just rolling on

I can't play sounds right now because I'd wake up my wife, but is it this one? Looks like it might be a song by Pat and Tom Sauber.

Yes Joe, that's the correct song. The video indicates that the song is originally by the Monroe Brothers, but I can't find their version, but an earlier version by the Prairie Ramblers (click) is available.

Note that this is a western swing version of the song, not a bluegrass version, as the Monroe Brothers' would be.

Lyrics are as follows:

I wish I was in Southland, sitting in a chair
One arm around my old guitar, and the other 'round my dear

REFRAIN
I'm rolling on, I'm rolling on
I'm rolling on through life, just rolling on

Sitting in the moonlight, blue as blue can be
Strumming on my old guitar just to give my poor heart ease

I'm rolling on &c.

I have no home or money, everyone turned me down
Always digged them old guitar, it's the only true friend I've found

I'm rolling on &c.

Yodeling solo

Whether I'm in the city, whether I'm in a town
My guitar is always near me whether I'm up or down

I'm rolling on &c.

Maybe someday I'll marry if I can find a girl
But I'll always love my guitar as much as I love her

I'm rolling on &c.

My guitar now will travel, we'll travel from shore to shore
And when me find a little girl, we'll never travel no more

I'm rolling on &c.

Yodeling solo



And Joe, here is a second request for this exact same song from 2012. I suppose you could combine them if you wanted, but not much came of it.

I hear a couple of phrases differently, in the Prairie Ramblers recording:

Verse 3 line 2:

I always pick some old guitar....

Verse 6 line 1:

My guitar and I will travel....
