The Dubliners - Wild Rover Lyrics

  • I've been a wild rover for many a year
  • And I spent all my money on whiskey and beer,
  • And now I'm returning with gold in great store
  • And I never will play the wild rover no more.
  • Chorus:
  • And it's no, nay, never,
  • No nay never no more,
  • Will I play the wild rover
  • No never no more.
  • I went to an ale-house 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 as yours I could have any day."
  • Chorus:
  • I took from my pocket ten sovereigns bright
  • And the landlady's eyes opened wide with delight.
  • She said "I have whiskey and wines of the best
  • And the words that I spoke sure 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 ofttimes before
  • Sure I never will play the wild rover no more.
  • Chorus:
