The Wild Rover

This song is by The Dubliners and appears…

This song is a cover of the Traditional "The Wild Rover".
I've been a wild rover for many's the year
And I've spent all me 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

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

I went into an ale house I used to frequent
And I told the landlady me money was spent
I asked her for credit, she answered me "Nay"
"Such a custom as yours I can have every day"

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

I then took from me pocket ten sovereigns bright
And the landlady's eyes opened wide with delight
She says "I have whiskeys and the wines of the best"
"And the words that you told me were only in jest"

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

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've caressed me as oft' times before
I never will play the wild rover no more

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

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