Wild Rover

Song Author Írskt þjóðlag Lyrics by: Gavin Greig Performer: The Dubliners Submitted by: plaxdal
I've [G]been the wild rover for many a [C]year
[G]Spent all my [D]money on [D7]whiskey and [G]beer
But now I'm returning with gold in re[C]store
[G]Never I'll [D]play the wild [D7]rover no [G]more

And it's [D]no nay [D7]never
[G]No nay never no [C]more
Will I [G]play the wild [C]rover
No [D7]never no [G]more

I [G]went to a chantey I used to fre[C]quent
[G]Told the land[D]lady my [D7]money was [G]spent
I asked for her credit she answered me [C]nay  
[G]Saying: 'customers [D]like you I can [D7]get any [G]day'

And it's [D]no nay [D7]never
[G]No nay never no [C]more
Will I [G]play the wild [C]rover
No [D7]never no [G]more

I [G]drew from my pocket ten sovereigns [C]bright
The [G]landlady's [D]eyes opened [D7]wide in [G]delight
Saying: ' I have the whiskey and wine of the [C]best
[G]And the words[D] that I told you were [D7]only in [G]jest'

And it's [D]no nay [D7]never
[G]No nay never no [C]more
Will I [G]play the wild [C]rover
No [D7]never no [G]more

I'll go [G]home to my parents confess what I've [C]done
And [G]ask them to [D]pardon their [D7]prodigal [G]son  
And if the do as so often be[C]fore
Then [G]I never[D] shall play the wild [D7]rover no [G]more

And it's [D]no nay [D7]never
[G]No nay never no [C]more
Will I [G]play the wild [C]rover
No [D7]never no [G]more

I've been the wild rover for many a year
Spent all my money on whiskey and beer
But now I'm returning with gold in restore
Never I'll 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 to a chantey I used to frequent
Told the landlady my money was spent
I asked for her credit she answered me nay
Saying: 'customers like you I can get any day'

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

I drew from my pocket ten sovereigns bright
The landlady's eyes opened wide in delight
Saying: ' I have the whiskey and wine of the best
And the words that I told you 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 ask them to pardon their prodigal son
And if the do as so often before
Then I never shall 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
