I'm A Rover

This song is by Nicole and appears on the album Turn (1999) by Great Big Sea and on the compilation album Road Rage (2000) by Great Big Sea.

Though the night be dark as dungeon,
Not a star to be seen above.
I will be guided, without a stumble,
To the arms o' me only love.

I went up to her bed room window,
Kneeling gently upon a stone.
I rapped on her bedroom window,
"My darling dear do you lie alone?"

For I'm a rover, seldom sober,
I'm a rover of high degree.
An' when I'm drinkin', I'm always thinking
Of how to gain my love's company.

She raised her head from her feather pillow,
Raised her arms up around her breasts.
Sayin', "Who's at me bedroom window
Disturbing me at me long night's rest?"

"It's only me, your own true lover,
Open the door and please let me in
For, I have come a long night's journey,
And I'm near drenched to the skin."

For I'm a rover, seldom sober,
I'm a rover of high degree.
An' when I'm drinkin', I'm always thinking
Of how to gain my love's company.

She opened the door with the greatest pleasure!
Opened the door, and she let me in!
We both shook hands and embraced each other
Till the morning we lay as one!

"But now, Me love, I must go and leave you.
Though the mountains be high above.
Well I will climb them with greater pleasure,
That I've been with me only love!"

For I'm a rover, seldom sober,
I'm a rover of high degree.
An' when I'm drinkin', I'm always thinking
Of how to gain my love's company.

For I'm a rover, seldom sober,
I'm a rover of high degree.
An' when I'm drinkin', I'm always thinking
Of how to gain my love's company.
