Rollin' Home (Irish Descendants)

I'll come a-rollin' home
when my rovin' days are done,
And when I do I'll finally
settle down and never stray;
I'll come a-rollin' home
when my rovin' days are done,
And when I do I'll finally
settle down and never stray.

On the road from here to God knows where,
With a million miles to go,
I'll stop and smell the roses on the way;
I'll wander 'round forgotten towns,
Where there's lots of birds, and saints abound,
And everywhere I'll take a souvenier.

I'll come a-rollin' home
when my rovin' days are done,
And when I do I'll finally
settle down and never stray.

There's a girl in every port of call
For the sailor, so they say,
And a star for every wish that has been made;
And when I'm a sailor out upon,
The dark and rollin' sea,
I'll be wishin' on that star that's made for me.

I'll come a-rollin' home
when my rovin' days are done,
And when I do I'll finally
settle down and never stray;
I'll come a-rollin' home
when my rovin' days are done,
And when I do I'll finally
settle down and never stray.

All the bridges we cross along the way,
All the water that has flowed,
And as the rivers flow into the sea,
The rivers and the ocean become one.

On the road from here to God knows where,
With a million miles to go,
I'll stop and smell the roses on the way;
I'll wander 'round forgotten towns
Where there's lots of birds, and saints abound,
And everywhere I'll take a souvenier.

I'll come a-rollin' home
when my rovin' days are done,
And when I do I'll finally
settle down and never stray;
I'll come a-rollin' home
when my rovin' days are done,
And when I do I'll finally
settle down and never stray.

I'll come a-rollin' home
when my rovin' days are done,
And when I do I'll finally
settle down and never stray;
I'll come a-rollin' home
when my rovin' days are done,
And when I do I'll finally
settle down and never stray.

[FADING] I'll come a-rollin' home
when my rovin' days are done,
And when I do I'll finally
settle down and never stray;
I'll come a-rollin' home
when my rovin' days are done,
And when I do I'll finally
settle down and never stray.....
