Wild Rover Songtext
I´ve been a wild rover fo many´s the year And I´ve spent all me money on whiskey and beer But now I´m returning with gold in great store And I´ll never will play the wild rover no more Chorus 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" Chorus 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 Chorus 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 Chorus (strophen fehlen) And it´s no, nay, never No, nay, never, no more Will I play the wild rover No, never, no more
