Song:

 

There was a jolly beggarman
3 3 -3 -4 4 -5 -4 -3
Came tripping o'er the plain
3 3 7 7 -7 7 -6*
He came unto a farmer's door
-5 7 -7 -7 7 6 -6* 7
A lodging for to gain
6 5 -4 -3 3 -4 -3
The farmer's daughter she came down
3 3 -3 -4 4 -5 -4 -3
And viewed him cheek and chin
3 3 7 7 -7 7 -6*
She says "He is a handsome man
-5 7 -7 -7 7 6 -6* 7
I pray you take him in"
6 5 -4 -3 3 -4 -3

 

We'll go no more a roving
3 3 -3 -4 4 -5 -4 -3
A roving in the night
3 3 7 7 -7 7 6
We'll go no more a roving
-5 7 -8 -7 7 6 -6* 7
Let the moon shine so bright
6 -5 -4 -3 3 -4 -3
We'll go no more a roving
3 3 -3 -4 4 -5 3

 

He would not lie within the barn

Nor yet within the byre

But he would in the corner lie

Down by the kitchen fire

O then the beggar's bed was made

Of good clean sheets and hay

And down beside the kitchen fire

The jolly beggar lay

 

We'll go no more a roving

A roving in the night

We'll go no more a roving

Let the moon shine so bright

We'll go no more a roving

 

The farmer's daughter she got up

To bolt the kitchen door

And there she saw the beggar

Standing naked on the floor

He took the daughter in his arms

And to the bed he ran

Kind sir, she says, be easy now

You'll waken our goodman

 

We'll go no more a roving

A roving in the night

We'll go no more a roving

Let the moon shine so bright

We'll go no more a roving

 

Now you are no beggar

You are some gentleman

For you have stolen my maidenhead

And I am quite undone

I am no lord, I am no squire

Of beggars I be one

And beggars they be robbers all

So you're quite undone

 

We'll go no more a roving

A roving in the night

We'll go no more a roving

Let the moon shine so bright

 

We'll go no more a roving
