DUBLINERS


Wild Rover Lyrics

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

Chorus:
And it's no, nay, never,
No nay never no more,
Will I play the wild rover
No never no more.

I went to an ale-house I used to frequent
And I told the landlady my money was spent.
I asked her for credit, she answered me "nay
Such a custom as yours I could have any day."

Chorus:

And then from my pocket I pulled sovereigns bright
And the landlady's eyes opened wide with delight.
She said "I have whiskey and wines of the best
And the words that I spoke sure 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 prodigal son.
And if they caress me as ofttimes before
Sure I never will play the wild rover no more.

Chorus:

I love this version of The Wild Rover, however when I went to purchase it I couldn't find the one that plays from the web site ... it is rockin'!
