Subject: Rolling Home
From: GUEST,Piper
Date: 08 Nov 01 - 12:18 AM

I need urgently the lyrics to song called Rolling Home. The chorus goes
"Rolling home,
when we go rolling home,
when we go rolling, rolling,
when we go rolling home"
The first verse goes something like this:
"Round goes the wheel of fortune,
don't be afraid to rise,
there's a land of milk and honey,
waits on the other side,
there'll be wealth and there'll be plenty,
you'll never be alone,
when we g o rolling home,
when we go rolling home"
I need the lyrics by Friday if possible
Many thanks Piper

Rolling Home

  1. 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

    Chorus:
    Key to Hand Dance on Chorus
    r Perform with right hand.
    l Perform mirror image action with left hand.
    S Slap thighs.
    C Clap hands at belly button height.
    K r Tap right fist on top of left fist at belly button height.
    F r With hands open and palms down, wave hands over each other at belly button height with right hand on top.
    P r Make a canoe paddling motion on right side.
    W r On "Roll", place right elbow in left hand, point right hand with index finger extended straight out, make a counter clockwise circle about two hands in diameter up. On "ing", while keeping the right elbow cupped in the palm of the left hand, bring index finger up to beside the right ear.
    Ears Cup hands over ears.
    Eyes Cup hands over Eyes
    Up r Starting with index finger of right hand extended and right hand between shoulder and neck move index finger up an to the right (about 30 &degrees; from vertical) until right arm is fully extended end of the word.

    S S  C C  F r F r F l F l     K r K r K l K l P r P r
    Roll- ing   home,   when   we   go   roll- ing   home  
      P l P l W r W l
    When   we   go   rolling,   rolling
    Ears   Eyes   Ears   Eyes   Ears   Up r
    When  we   go   roll- ing   home


  2. 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 *is *our *own
    When we go rolling home, when we go rolling home

    Chorus:

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

    Chorus:

  4. 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 *is *your *own
    When we go rolling home, when we go rolling home

    Chorus:

  5. *So pass the bottle round and let the toast go free *(FREE THE TOAST!!)
    Here's a health to every labourer wherever they may be
    Fair wages are now *and *ever, let's reap what we have sown
    When we go rolling home, when we go rolling home
(Lyrics by John Tams)
(From the version sung by Roy Bailey)
(With editorial changes by Tom Baxter noted with '*')
(Burma Shave)

Yes, it's been requested and discussed in the forum many times, but I've never come across the hand jive to it before, Jeff, in all the places and times I've sung it! *grin*
