bigj Origins: One More Day (rock and roll me over) (12) ADD Version: One More Day 24 Sep 97

From your fragment and description it sounds as though the version you heard might be the one recorded by HOME SERVICE on their recording of the same name (Jigsaw Records SAW3) in 1984, Here are the words as printed on the sleeve notes :-


Now's the time to leave her Johnny, one more day
And did you swear you'd not deceive her Johnny, one more day
For we're homeward bound tomorrow Johnny, one more day
And will you leave her without sorrow Johnny, one more day

    Only one more day my Johnny, one more day Johnny, one more day
    Oh come and rock n' roll me over, one more day.

Don't you hear the old man calling Johnny, one more day
And don't you hear the first mate bawling Johnny, one more day
Then put on your long-tailed blue my Johnny, one more day
For you pay is nearly due Johnny, one more day

Come and row me to my lover Johnny, one more day
And let the starlight be my cover Johnny, one more day
Only one more day together Johnny, one more day
No more gales nor heavy weather Johnny, one more day

Trad: arr, Graeme Taylor. Lead vocals - John Tams
