Wild Rover


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.

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 custom as yours I could have any day."

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."


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.

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'!
