The Wild Rover Lyrics

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

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.


I go into an ale-house I used to frequent
And I told the landlady me money was spent.
I asked her for credit, she ordered me out
"Such a custom as yours I can well do without"


And out of my pocket I took ten 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'd go home to my parents, confess what I've done
And they'll open their arms to their prodigal son.
And when they've caress me as ofttimes before
Sure I never will play the wild rover no more.
