This song was the stream-opener of the Longest Johns Youtube stream of the 27th of November. This was the result of a vote made on Discord. The band was joined by the Bristolian musician Natalie Holmes. Although many phares are similar to the shanty "Rolling Down The River", TLJ put their own spin on lyrics and rhythm.
This song is a stub! It doesn't appear to have been recorded on a livestream, youtube video, or album from the Longest Johns yet!

This song was the stream-opener of the Longest Johns Youtube stream of the 27th of November. This was the result of a vote made on Discord. The band was joined by the Bristolian musician Natalie Holmes. Although many phares are similar to the shanty "Rolling Down The River", TLJ put their own spin on lyrics and rhythm.

Lyrics based off notes by listening:

When first I saw a TEU

Rolling up and rolling down

I wondered where the hell they stowed the crew

To go rolling down the river

(Hey!)

Chorus:

Rolling up and rolling down,

We'll all get drunk in Tillbury Town

24 hours to turn around

and go rolling down the river

Well cargo it comes in TEUs

Rolling up and rolling down

A 20-foot box boys filled with booze

To go rolling down the river

(Whoo!)

Chorus

There's a Tillbury girl called cattle Jane

Rolling up and rolling down

Pots on the boil and off again

To go rolling down the river

Chorus

Well she's got a mate called Teapot Anne

Rolling up and rolling down

She gets well brewed, she likes a man

To go rolling down the river

(Hey!)

Chorus

Well Tillbury girls go round in pairs

Rolling up and rolling down

You want catch them, boys, unawares

To go rolling down the river

(Hey!)

Chorus

Well we're the boys to kick her through

Rolling up and rolling down

To hell with the channel and the TEU

Let's go down the river

(Hey!)

Chorus x2
