Thread Name: Lyr Add: When We Go Rolling Home (Tams)
Subject: RE: LYR REQ: As we go rolling home
Thanks Liz, you've saved me a lot of typing... There is, of course, no reason girls shouldn't sing this song. Neither is there a reason that guys shouldn't sing The Trees They Do Grow High, but personally I wouldn't...

I've just always thought of this as a rollicking, rowdy, weekend-in-the-woods-discovering-your-power-animal kind of number, to be belted out in basso profundo while quaffing (yes, quaffing) Frog Island Owd Sole-Bender, belching and scratching. None of these activities can I easily reconcile with the ladies who attend our folky circle... no, really!
