lyrics

I've been a wild rover for many's the year
I've spent all me money on whiskey and beer
But now I'm returning with gold in great store
And I never will 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 in to an alehouse I used to frequent
And I told the landlady me money was spent
I asked her for credit, she answered me nay
Such custom as yours I can have any day

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

I took up from my pocket ten shillings bright
And the landlady's eyes lit up with delight
She said we have whiskeys and wines all the best
And the words that I spoke they 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 I'll ask them to pardon their prodigal son
And after they've caressed me as oft times before
I never will 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
