Rolling home, rolling home
Rolling home across the sea
Rolling home to dear New England
Rolling home dear land to thee

Call all hands to man the capstan
See the cable it runs clear
And we'll heave and heave together
For New England home we'll steer

Twice five thousand miles behind us
Twice five thousand miles before
Now we're passing St Helena
Heading for New England's shore

And we'll sing in joyful chorus
To the watches of the night
And we'll sight thou dear New England
When the dawn brings in the light
