Joe Offer Origins: When a Chap Comes Hame/Roarin' Fire (5) ADD Version: A Good Roaring Fire 12 Dec 20


A GOOD ROARING FIRE
(Johnny Patterson)

A good roarin' fire and the kettle on the boil,
It makes a chap feel jolly when heís done his daily toil.
A tidy smiliní wife and a clean hearth-stone,
O it's very, very cosy when a chap comes home.

Three or four around it and a good bit on the board,
It makes a chap feel happy as the daddy of a lord.
A tidy smiliní wife and a clean hearth-stone,
O it's very, very jolly when a chap comes home.

To meet your wife in kindness and to see the children run,
Your home is like a palace and you never need to roam,
A tidy smilin' wife and a clean hearth-stone,
O, it's very, very cosy when a chap comes home.
