Song: 3/4 time - moderately spirited

-8    7  -8  7   -6 6   8  8 -8   8  -9  
I've been a wild rover for many's a year

-8  -9  9    8  9 -9 -8  -7   6 8   -8   7
And I spent all my money on whiskey and beer
 
7   7   -8  7  -6  6   8    8  -8   8     -9
But now I'm returning with gold in great store

8  -9  9 8   9    -9  -8   -7  6 8   -8  7
And I never will play the wild rover no more

Chorus

-7   7  -8  -8  -7 6   8  8   8 -8  8  -9
And it's no nay never, no nay never no more

8   -9  9   8    7   -7 -6  -6 -6 6  8  '8 7
Will I play the wild rover, no never no more


I went into an alehouse I used to frequent
I told the landlady my money was spent
I asked her for credit, she answered me "Nay
Such a custom as yours I can have any day".  

Chorus

I took out from my pocket ten sovereigns bright 
And the landlady's eyes opened wide with delight 
She said "I've got whiskeys and wines of the best
And the words that I spoke they were only in jest". 

Chorus

I'll go home to my parents, confess what I've done
And I'll ask them to pardon their prodigal son
And if they caress me as oft times before
Sure I never will play the wild rover no more. 

Chorus


*I think this song sounds better
in a lower key like A or G.
I've been playing it on an Ab/G#
and it sounds pretty darn good. (smile)))
