Roll the Old Chariot

(We'll Roll the Golden Chariot Along; A Drop of Nelson's Blood)

We'll roll the golden chariot along,
We'll roll the golden chariot along,
We'll roll the golden chariot along,
Ch: And we'll all hang on behind!

If the devil's in the road we'll roll it over him,
If the devil's in the road we'll roll it over him,
If the devil's in the road, we'll roll it over him
Ch: And we'll all hang on behind!


From Sandburg's "The American Songbag"
From Songs of the Sailor and Lumberman by William Main Doerflinger (1951, '72, '91)
Roll the old chariot along
Roll the old chariot along
Roll the old chariot along
And we'll all hang on behind!

A plate of hot scouse wouldn't do us any harm, etc.

A new plum duff wouldn't do us any harm, etc.

A glass of whiskey hot wouldn't do us any harm, etc.
