Wild Rover

Traditional

3:4 Key: G

I've [G]been a wild rover for many the [C]year
And I [G]spent all my [D]money on whiskey and [G]beer.
But now I'm returning with gold in great [C]store
And I [G]never will [D]play the wild rover no [G]more

And it's [D]no nay [D7]never, [G]no never no [C]more
Will I [G]play the wild [C]rover, no [G]never, [C6]no [G]more


I went to an alehouse I used to fre[C]quent
And I [G]told the land[D]lady my money was [G]spent
I asked her for credit, she answered me '[C]nay
Such [G]custom as [D]yours I could have any [G]day'

And it's [D]no nay [D7]never, [G]no never no [C]more
Will I [G]play the wild [C]rover, no [G]never, [C6]no [G]more


I took from my pocket ten sovereigns [C]bright
And the [G]landlady's [D]eyes opened wide with de[G]light
She said 'I have whiskey and wines of the [C]best,
And the [G]words that I [D]spoke sure were only a [G]jest'.

And it's [D]no nay [D7]never, [G]no never no [C]more
Will I [G]play the wild [C]rover, no [G]never, [C6]no [G]more


I'll go home to my parents, confess what I've [C]done
And I'll [G]ask them to [D]pardon their prodigal [G]son.
And if they caress me as oft times be[C]fore,
Sure I [G]never will [D]play the wild rover no [G]more.

And it's [D]no nay [D7]never, [G]no never no [C]more
Will I [G]play the wild [C]rover, no [G]never, [C6]no [G]more


And it's [D]no nay [D7]never, [G]no never no [C]more

Will I [G]play the wild [C]rover, no [G]never, [C6]no [G]more
