Rolling Home to Old New England Call all hands to man the capstan See the cable running clear Heave away and with a will, boys For new England we will steer Rolling home, rolling home Rolling home across the sea Rolling home to old New England Rolling home dear land to thee Fare you well, you Spanish maidens It is time to say adieu Happy times we've spent together Happy times we've spent with you "Round Cape Horn one frosty morning And our sails were full of snow Clear your sheets and sway your halyards Swing her out and let her go Up aloft amid the rigging Blows a wild and rushing gale Like a monsoon in the springtime Filling out each well known sail And the waves we leave behind us Seem to murmur as they flow There's a hearty welcome waiting In the land to which you go Many thousand miles behind us Many thousand miles before Ocean lifts her winds to bring us To that well remembered shore Ed Trickett learned from Lawrence Older Recorded on Golden Ring SOF
