Dubliners – The wild rover

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

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

  G                                   C
I went in to an alehouse I used to frequent
      G            C       D7        G
And I told the landlady me money was spent
  G                                      C
I asked her for credit, she answered me "Nay!"
      G         C             D7       G
"Such custom as yours I could have any day!"


  G                                    C
I took out of me pocket ten sovereigns bright
        G          C           D7          G
And the landlady's eyes opened wide with delight
    G                                       C
She said: "I have whiskeys and wines on the best!
        G            C             D7      G
And the words that I told you were only in jest!"


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

chorus (x2)
