Story

Wheels Go Round is a, century and a half or more, journey ‘round the wheel. Where else would it take you but back home again?

Lyrics

They say now that Ireland is no place to be

No hope of a future for farmers like me

I’ll not stay until I’m a vagabond poor

There’s money a’plenty on Newfoundland’s shore

I’ll go out ahead and I’ll work on the boats

I’ll build us a home and a life I’ll cut no more sod,

I’ll fish for the cod I’ll send for you darling and make you my wife

And it’s round and round the wheels go round

Onward and outward we’re bound

The wheels of change that force you to roam

The wheels on the cart that lead you from home

The wheel of life with it’s passion and pain

That finally brings you back home again

They say that there’s not enough fish in the sea

No hope of a future for someone like me

I won’t take their hand out nor sit on the dole

There’s money a’plenty out west diggin’ coal

I’ll go out ahead and I’ll work in the mines

I’ll build us a home and a life

I’ll save up my pay I’ll write every day

I’ll send for you darling and make you my wife

They say there’s no market for coal overseas

No hope for a future for miners like me

I won’t watch our dreams like the dust blow away

There’s money a plenty in software they say

So I’ll go out ahead and I’ll upgrade my skills

I’ll build us a home and a life

I’ll surf on the net, I’ll learn this thing yet

I’ll email you darling and make you my wife

And the more things change the more they stay the same

Toss the dice or spin the wheel, we’re all in the game

Join the email list!
