A                                 D
I've been a wild rover for many a year 
A                  D        E7          A  
And I spent all my money on whiskey and beer,
A                                        D 
And now I'm returning with gold in great store 
    A            D        E7            A
And I never will play the wild rover no more. 

And it's no, nay, never, 
A               D
No nay never no more, 
       A             D 
Will I play the wild rover 
E7       A 
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 a custom as yours I could have any day." 


I took from my pocket 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'll go home to my parents, confess what I've done 
And I'll ask them to pardon their prodigal son. 
And when they caress me as ofttimes before 
Sure I never will play the wild rover no more.
