The Jolly Beggarman Lyrics

It's of a jolly beggarman came tripping o'er the plain
He came unto a farmer's door a lodging for to gain
The farmer's daughter, she came down and viewed him
cheek and chin
She said, "He is a handsome man, I pray you take him

Chorus (after each verse):
We'll go no more a-roving
A-roving in the night
We'll go no more a-roving
Let the moon shine out so bright
We'll go no more a-roving

He would no lie within the barn nor yet within the byre
But he would in the corner lie down by the kitchen fire
Oh then the beggar's bed was made of good clean sheets
and hay
And down beside the kitchen fire the jolly beggar lay

The farmer's daughter, she got up to bolt the kitchen
And there she saw the beggar standing naked on the
He took the daughter in his hands and to the bed he ran
"Kind sir," she says, "Be easy now, you'll waken our
good man"

"Now you are no beggar, you are some gentleman
For you did steal my maidenhead, and I am quite undone"
"I am no lord, I am no squire, of beggars I be one
And beggars, they be robbers all, so you are quite

(Chorus 2x)
