Wild Rover [G]
I've [G] been a wild rover for many a [C] year
I [G] spent all me [C] money on [D7] whiskey and [G] beer
But [G] now I'm returning with gold in great [C] store
And [G] I never will [C] play the [D7] wild rover no [G] more
And it's [D7] no nay never,[G] no nay never no [C]more
Will I [G] play the wild [C] rover, no [D7] never, no [G] more
I [G] went in to an alehouse I used to fre[C]quent
And I [G] told the land[C] lady me [D7] money was [G] spent
I [G] asked her for credit, she answered me "[C] Nay!"
"Such [G] custom as [C] yours I could [D7]h ave any [G]day!"
I [G] took out of me pocket ten sovereigns [C] bright
And the [G] landlady's [C] eyes opened [D7] wide with de[G] light
She [G] said: "I have whiskeys and wines on the [C] best!
And the [G] words that I [C] told you were [D7] only in [G]jest!"
I'll go [G] home to my parents, confess what I've [C] done
And [G] ask them to [C] pardon their [D7] prodigal [G] son
And [G] when they've caressed me as oft times be[C]fore
I [G] never will [C] play the wild [D7] rover no [G] more.
