[Intro]
G  C  G  Bm  C  Am  G  C   (2x)
G  Am  G  C   G Am  G C G  (2x)

[Verse 1]
                                C                 D
It's of a jolly beggarman, came tripping o'er the plain
   G           C                G              D
He came unto a farmer's door, a lodging for to gain
    G                                    C                    D
The farmer's daughter, she came down and viewed him cheek and chin
    Em             C               G                 D
She said, "He is a handsome man, I pray you take him in"


[Chorus]
      G
We'll go no more a-roving
  Am            D
A-roving in the night
      G            C
We'll go no more a-roving
        G                 D
Let the moon shine out so bright
      G
We'll go no more a-roving


[Verse 2]
                                    C               D
He would no lie within the barn, nor yet within the byre
    G               C                G              D
But he would in the corner lie down, by the kitchen fire
    G                                 C                     D
Ah, then the beggar's bed was made of good clean sheets and hay
    Em              C                 G            D
And down beside the kitchen fire, the jolly beggar lay


[Chorus]
      G
We'll go no more a-roving
  Am            D
A-roving in the night
      G            C
We'll go no more a-roving
        G                 D
Let the moon shine out so bright
      G
We'll go no more a-roving


[Verse 3]
                                      C                D
The farmer's daughter, she got up, to bolt the kitchen door
    G                 C                G            D
And there she saw the beggar standing, naked on the floor
   G                                  C             D
He took the daughter in his hands and to the bed he ran
      Em                  C                G              D
"Kind sir," she says, "Be easy now, you'll waken our good man"


[Chorus]
      G
We'll go no more a-roving
  Am            D
A-roving in the night
      G            C
We'll go no more a-roving
        G                 D
Let the moon shine out so bright
      G
We'll go no more a-roving


[Instrumental]
G  Am  G  C   G Am  G C G


[Verse 4]
                            C              D
"Now you are no beggar, you are some gentleman
    G               C               G            D
For ye did steal my maidenhead, and I am quite undone"
   G                              C            D
"I am no lord, I am no squire, of beggars I be one
    Em               C               G               D
And beggars, they be robbers all, so you are quite undone"


[Chorus]
      G
We'll go no more a-roving
  Am            D
A-roving in the night
      G            C
We'll go no more a-roving
        G                 D
Let the moon shine out so bright
      G
We'll go no more a-roving


[Chorus]
      G
We'll go no more a-roving
  Am            D
A-roving in the night
      G            C
We'll go no more a-roving
        G                 D
Let the moon shine out so bright
      G
We'll go no more a-roving


[Outro]
G  C  G  Bm  C  Am  G  C   (2x)
G  Am  G  C   G Am  G C G  (2x)
