I'm a Rover  Great Big Sea

"I'm A Rover" (Trad/Arr. GBS)
From "Turn" (1999)
Sean's Guitar Capo second fret
Though the [G]night be [C]dark as dung[G]eon
not a [Em]star to be [C]seen abo[D]ve
I will be [G]guided without a s[C]tumb[G]le
into the [Em]arms of me o[D]nly lo[G]ve
I went unto her bedroom window
kneeling gently upon a stone
I rapped on her bedroom window
my darling dear do you lie alone?
For I'm a r[G]over, s[C]eldom so[G]ber
I'm a [Em]rover of hi[C]gh de[D]gree,
and when I'm [G]drinking,
I'm always [C]thin[G]king,
how to [Em]gain my love's [D]compan[G]y
she raised her head from her feathered pillow
raised her arms up around her breast
saying "who's at me bedroom window
disturbing me at me long night's rest?"
It's only me your own true lover
open the door and please let me in,
For I have come on a long night's journey
I am near drenched to the skin
She opened the door with the greatest pleasure
opened the door and she let me in
we both shook hands and embraced each other
until the morning we lay as one
But now me love I must go and leave you
though the mountains be high above
well,I will climb them with greater pleasure
than have been with me only love
CHORUS x2 first acapella then intro to end on G
the other version on this site misses a couple
passing chords.
