Paddy Schmidt – Wild Rover lyrics
I've been a wild rover for many's the year
And I've spent all me money on whiskey and beer
And now I'm returning with gold in great store
And I'll never will play the wild rover no more

I went into a alehouse 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 like yours I can have every day"

I broght up from me pockets ten sovereigns bright
And the landlady's eyes opened wide with delight
She said: "I have whiskies and whines of the best
And the words that you've told me were only in jest

I'll go back to my parents confessed what I've done
And I'll ask them to pardon their prodigal son
And if they've caressed me, as oftimes 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
