Subject: LYR REQ: As we go rolling home
From: AllisonA(Animaterra)
Date: 07 Jun 99 - 09:04 AM

I think it's an English pub song. It refers to the ease and luxury of the rich, with lines like "while we poor weary laborers do plow the fields of corn...". It's not in the DT as far as I can tell!
Thanks- this song has been waking me up at night!

I agree! This version came from Dave Webber, and I don't know when the "frost is on the hedgerow" verse was added.
Blessings,
Barbara
And thanks for pasting in the corrections, Joe.

As I understand it, when John Tams originally wrote Rolling Home it was for a play in which he was involved. He only wrote two verses, "Round goes the wheel..." and "The gentry... ".

His friend Roy Bailey really liked the song, but said he felt there ought to be more verses before he (Roy) could feel it was complete enough for him to do in concert. John then wrote the other verses. I first heard it recorded by Swan Arcade, who sang four verses, but not the one starting "The frost is on the hedgrerow..."

Two, four or five verses, - what a great song!!!

Took me awhile, BAZ, but there it is.
And a few minor corrections to the lyrics, too:
(corrections in bold Verse 2
The gentry in its fine array do prosper night and morn...

Verse 3
The summer of resentment, the winter of despair
The journey to contentment is set with trap and snare
Think that's about it.
Great song!
Blessings,
Barbara

The Roy Bailey version is on 'What You Do With What You've Got', a 1992 compilation brought out by Fuse Records. It's the one original track on the CD, recorded live at the White Horse Folk Club in Beverley (with, as Roy says in his notes, 'a somewhat enthusiastic audience'), and features John Kirkpatrick on button accordion. The whole CD is a marvellous introduction to Roy's work. - Susanne

I'm hoping Joe Offer or one of the other boffins will pick up on this and put in a link to Alan of Oz's clever prog. that turns a midi file into a text file and enables it to be posted here within a thread.
Thanks for taking the time

A great version of this, with a mass chorus, can be found at the end of one of Roy Bailey's CDs. Unfortunately, I've forgotten which one. I'll have to go home and look, and let you know next year.
Happy New Year to all the Mudcatters! Susanne

Hi Folk`s

Merry Christmas from Germany.

The first verse and the chorus of "When We Go Rolling Home" you also can hear in a movie called "Ragedy". It´s a movie about travelling people andin one scene when they´re working on a field in harvest time they sing this song.

Greetings

BRUNO

BAZ, I'd be delighted to get you the tune as soon as I figure out what it is. Give her the words and tell her the tune is coming. I have trouble telling the melody from the harmonies in the Webber/Fentiman recording. It's on "Beggars Velvet -Lady of Autumn" if you want to buy it and try to sort out the parts yourselves. (grin)
Otherwise, sorry, but you'll have to wait. Have a blessed Yule.
Blessings,
Barbara

Subject: Lyr Add: WHEN WE GO ROLLING HOME (John Tams)^^
From: Barbara

WHEN WE GO ROLLING HOME
(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.

CHORUS:
Rolling home, (when we go)
Rolling home, (when we go)
Rolling , rolling,
When we go rolling home.

The gentry in its fine array
Do prosper night and morn
While we unto the fields must go
To plow and sow the corn,
The rich may steal the power
But the glory is our own
When we go rolling home, (2X)

(Chorus)

The summer of resentment
The winter of despair
The journey to contentment
Is set with trap and snare;
Stand true and stand together
Your labor is your own,
When we go rolling home (2X)

(Chorus)
The frost is on the hedgerow
The icy winds do blow
While we poor weary laborers
Strive through the sleet and snow;
Our hopes fly up to glory
Up where the larks do go
When we go rolling home(2X)

(Chorus)

So pass the bottle round
And let the toasts go free
It's a health to every laborer
Wherever he may be
Fair wages now and ever
Let's reap what we have sown
When we go rolling home (2X)

(Chorus)

Repeat first verse and Chorus
^^
