H08 - Wild Rover

I've been a wild rover for many a year,
and I spent all my money on whiskey and beer.
And 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 my money was spent.
I asked her for credit, she answered me “nay,
such a custom as yours I could 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 from my pocket ten sovereigns bright,
and the landlady's eyes opened wide with delight.
She said “I have whiskey and wines of the best,
and the words that I spoke sure 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 if they caress me as oft'times before,
sure 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.

And it's no, nay, never,
no nay never no more,
will I play the wild rover,
no never no more.
