I have been a wild rover for many's the year
And I spent all my 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 to an Ale House I used to frequent
And I told the landlady how my money was spent
I asked her for credit she answered me "nay
Such a custom as yours I can have any day"
I took from my pocket 10 Sovereigns Bright
And the landlady's eyes opened wide with delight
She said I have wiskey and wines of the best
And the words that I told they were only in Jest
I'll go home to my parents, confess what I've done
And I'll ask them to pardon the prodigal son
And when they've caressed me as oft'times before
I promise to play The Wild Rover no more
