The wild rover
hi, it's an easy song, with a few basic chords.
G C D D7 





                 G

I've been a wild rover for many's the year
C             D                 D7            G            
and I've spent all my money on whiskey and beer.
                             G                   C
But now I'm returning with gold in great store
D             D7             G               C
and I never will play the wild rover no more

               C
And it's no, nay, never, 
               D
no, nay, never, no more
              D7
will I play the wild rover
              G
no, never, no more 

                             G
I went into an ale-house I used to frequent
C             D                 D7                        G
and I told the landlady my money was spent.
                             G                   C
I asked her for credit, she answered me nay,
D             D7             G               C
Such "a custom like yours I can have any day

              C
And it's no, nay, never, 
               D
no, nay, never, no more
              D7
will I play the wild rover
             G
no, never, no more 

                              G
I took from my pocket ten sovereigns bright
C             D                 D7                        G
and the landlady's eyes opened wide with delight.
                             G                   C
She said I'd have whiskey and wines of the best
D             D7             G               C
and the words that she told me were only in jest.


              C
And it's no, nay, never, 
               D
no, nay, never, no more
              D7
will I play the wild rover
             G
no, never, no more

                               G
I'll go home to my parents, confess what I've done,
C             D                 D7                        G
and I'll ask them to pardon their prodigal son.
                             G                   C
And when they've caressed me as oft' times before
D             D7             G               C
then I never will play the wild rover no more


              C
And it's no, nay, never, 
               D
no, nay, never, no more
              D7
will I play the wild rover
             G
no, never, no more

              C
And it's no, nay, never, 
               D
no, nay, never, no more
              D7
will I play the wild rover
             G
no, never, no more
