The Halliard - Wild Rover lyrics

I've been a wild rover for manys the year
And I spent all me money on whiskey and beer,
Well 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 into an ale-house I used to frequent
And I told the landlady me money was spent.
I asked her for credit, she answers 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 put me hand in me pocket pulled out sovereigns bright
And the landlady's eyes opened wide with delight.
She said I've got whiskey and wines of the best
And the words that I told you was 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 back to my parents, confess what I've done
And I'll ask them to pardon their prodigal son.
And when they've caressed me as ofttimes before
Then 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've been a wild rover for manys the year
And I spent all me money on whiskey and beer,
Well 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.
