Misc – The Wild Rover lyrics

The wild rover
I've been a wild rover for many's the year
And I've spent all my money on whisky and beer.
But now I'm returning with money 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 my money was spent.
I asked her for credit, She answered ne: "Nay,
Such a custom as yours I can have ev'ry day".
And it's no nay never, no nay never no more
Will I play the wild rover no never no more.
Then I took from my pocket ten sovereigns bright
And the lanlady's eyes opened winde with delight;
She said: "I have whisky and wine 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 have done
And I'll ask them to pardon the prodigal son,
And when thes caress 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.
