The Brothers Four – Gypsy Rover lyrics

The gypsy rover came over the hill
Down through the valley so shady
He whistled and he sang 'til the green woods rang
And he won the heart of a lady.

Chorus:
Auh-de-doo-auh-de-doo-dah-day
Auh-de-doo-auh-de-day-dee
He whistled and he sang 'til the green woods rang
And he won the heart of a lady.

She left her father's castle gate
She left her own true lover
She left her family and her estate
To follow her gypsy rover

Chorus:
Auh-de-doo-auh-de-doo-dah-day
Auh-de-doo-auh-de-day-dee
He whistled and he sang 'til the green woods rang
And he won the heart of a lady.

Her father saddled his fastest steed
And ranged the valley over
He sought his daughter at great speed
And her whistling gypsy rover

At last he came to a mansion fine
Down by the River Clady
And there was music and there was wine
For the gypsy and his lady.

Chorus:
Auh-de-doo-auh-de-doo-dah-day
Auh-de-doo-auh-de-day-dee
He whistled and he sang 'til the green woods rang
And he won the heart of a lady.

He is no gypsy my father she said
But Lord of these lands all over
And here I'll stay 'til my dying day
With my whistling gypsy rover

Chorus:
Auh-de-doo-auh-de-doo-dah-day
Auh-de-doo-auh-de-day-dee
He whistled and he sang 'til the green woods rang
And he won the heart of a lady.

Chorus:
Auh-de-doo-auh-de-doo-dah-day
Auh-de-doo-auh-de-day-dee
He whistled and he sang 'til the green woods rang
And he won the heart of a lady...
