The Wild Rover

Dubliners

 GC
I've been a wild rover for many a year
 GCD7G
spent all me money on whiskey and beer
 GC
But now I'm returning with gold in great store
 GCD7G
And I never will play the wild rover no more

chorus:
 D7GC
   And it's no nay never, no nay never no more
 GCD7G
   Will I play the wild rover, no never, no more

 GC
went in to an alehouse I used to frequent
 GCD7G
And I told the landlady me money was spent
 GC
asked her for credit, she answered me "Nay!"
 GCD7G
"Such custom as yours I could have any day!"

chorus

 GC
took out of me pocket ten sovereigns bright
 GCD7G
And the landlady's eyes opened wide with delight
 GC
She said: "I have whiskeys and wines on the best!
 GCD7G
And the words that I told you were only in jest!"

chorus

 GC
I'll go home to my parents, confess what I've done
 GCD7G
And ask them to pardon their prodigal son
 GC
And when they've caressed me as oftimes before
 GCD7G
never will play the wild rover no more.

chorus (x2)
