Covered Wagons

35395, Children’s Songbook, Covered Wagons, 221

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.

Night after night we sit round the campfire,
Singing the songs that remind us of home.

Roll along, roll along, covered wagons!
Take us safely to our new home.

Someday we’ll reach the land of our dreaming,
Settle and build on some land of our own.

Roll along, roll along, covered wagons!
Take us safely to our new home.
