“Covered Wagons,” Children’s Songbook of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 221
1. Day after day the wagons are rolling.
Onward and westward we ever must roam.
Roll along, roll along, covered wagons!
Take us safely to our new home.
2. Night after night we sit round the campfire,
Singing the songs that remind us of home.
3. Someday we’ll reach the land of our dreaming,
Settle and build on some land of our own.
