The Wild Rover


by Irish Music. Buy album CD: Other Songs C - W


I've been a wild rover for many's year
And I spent some my money on whiskey and beer
But now I'm returning with gold in great store
And I never will play a wild rover no more

(Chorus)
And it's no nay never
No nay never no more
Will I play a wild rover
No never no more
I went into an ale-house I used tofrequent
And I told the landlady my money's was spent
I asked her for credit she answered me "Nay,
Such a custom like yours I could have any day"

(Chorus)

Well out of my pocket I took sovereigns bright
And the landlady's eyes opened wide with delight
She said "I have whiskey and bedīs of the best
And the words that I spoke
Were only in jest"

(Chorus)

I'll go home to my parents confess what I've done
And I'll ask them to pardon their bloody girl son
And if they forgive me as oft' time before
Well I nerver will play a wild rover no more

(Chorus)
