Subject: Lyr Req: Rolling Home (not all at sea!)
The following is a finish-the-evening song at our club, but now some smart alec has informed us there is a verse missing:

ROLLING HOME


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.

Rolling home, when we go rolling home,
When we go rolling, rolling, when we go rolling home.

And the gentry in their fine array will prosper night and morn,
While we unto the fields must go to plough and sow the corn.
The rich may steal the flour, but the glory is ours alone.
When we go rolling home, when we go rolling home.

Chorus

Summer of resentment, the winter of despair,
The journey to contentment is set with trap and snares.
Stand true and stand together, your labour is your own,
When we go rolling home, when we go rolling home.

Chorus

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

Rolling home, when we go rolling home,
When we go rolling, rolling, when we go rolling home.

Anyone know the missing verse, please?

Many thanks,
