Wild Rover

{t:Wild Rover}

I’ve [G]been a wild rover for many’s the [C]year
I’ve [G]spent all me money on [D]whiskey and [G]beer
But now I’m returning with gold in great [C]store
And I [G]never will play the wild [D]rover no [G]more


And it’s [D]No, Nay, never,
[G]No, nay, never no [C]more
Will I [G]play the wild [C]rover,
[G]No never [D]no [G]more


I [G]went in to an alehouse I used to fre[C]quent
And I [G]told the landlady me [D]money was [G]spent
I asked her for credit, she answered me [C]nay
Such a [G]customer as you I can [D]have any [G]day


And it’s [D]No, Nay, never,
[G]No, nay, never no [C]more
Will I [G]play the wild [C]rover,
[G]No never [D]no [G]more


I [G]took up from my pocket, ten sovereigns [C]bright
And the [G]landlady’s eyes opened [D]wide with de[G]light
She says “I have whiskeys and wines of the [C]best
And the [G]words that you told me were [D]only in [G]jest”


And it’s [D]No, Nay, never,
[G]No, nay, never no [C]more
Will I [G]play the wild [C]rover,
[G]No never [D]no [G]more


I’ll [G]go home to my parents, confess what I’ve [C]done
And I’ll [G]ask them to pardon their [D]prodigal [G]son
And, when they’ve caressed me as oft times be[C]fore
I never [G]will play the wild [D]rover no [G]more


And it’s [D]No, Nay, never,
[G]No, nay, never no [C]more
Will I [G]play the wild [C]rover,
[G]No never [D]no [G]more
