The Wild Rover

     D                            G
I've been a wild rover for many a year
  D            G        A7          D
I spent all me money on whiskey and beer
    D                                    G
But now I'm returning with gold in great store
    D            G        A7            D
And I never will play the wild rover no more

Chorus:
            A7           D                G      
   And it's no nay never, no nay never no more
          D             G         A7        D
   Will I play the wild rover, no never, no more

  D                                   G
I went in to an alehouse I used to frequent
      D            G       A7        D
And I told the landlady me money was spent
  D                                      G
I asked her for credit, she answered me "Nay!"
      D         G             A7       D
"Such custom as yours I could have any day!"

Chorus

  D                                    G
I took out of me pocket ten sovereigns bright
        D          G           A7          D
And the landlady's eyes opened wide with delight
    D                                       G
She said: "I have whiskeys and wines on the best!
        D            G             A7      D
And the words that I told you were only in jest!"

Chorus

        D                                     G
I'll go home to my parents, confess what I've done
    D           G            A7       D
And ask them to pardon their prodigal son
    D                                     G
And when they've caressed me as oftimes before
  D          G             A7       D
I never will play the wild rover no more.


Chorus
