Verse 1:

      C               
There was a jolly beggarman
     F                 G
Came tripping o'er the plain
    C         F
He came unto a farmer's door
   C             G
A lodging for to gain
    C                
The farmer's daughter she came down
    F                    G
And viewed him cheek and chin
    C              F
She says "He is a handsome man
   C                 G
I pray you take him in"

Chorus:

      C 
We'll go no more a roving
   F            G
A roving in the night
     C             F
We'll go no more a roving
        C              G
Let the moon shine so bright
      C
We'll go no more a roving



Verse 2:


    C
He would not lie within the barn
    F              G
Nor yet within the byre
     C              F
But he would in the corner lie
   C                G
Down by the kitchen fire
  C
O then the beggar's bed was made
    F                    G
Of good clean sheets and hay
   C                F
And down beside the kitchen fire
    C            G
The jolly beggar lay

Chorus:

      C 
We'll go no more a roving
   F            G
A roving in the night
     C             F
We'll go no more a roving
        C              G
Let the moon shine so bright
      C
We'll go no more a roving


Verse 3:


    C
The farmer's daughter she got up
   F                G
To bolt the kitchen door
    C               F
And there she saw the beggar
         G            G
Standing naked on the floor
   C
He took the daughter in his arms
   F              G
And to the bed he ran
    C                  F
Kind sir, she says, be easy now
       C              G
You'll waken our good man



Chorus:

      C 
We'll go no more a roving
   F            G
A roving in the night
     C             F
We'll go no more a roving
        C              G
Let the moon shine so bright
      C
We'll go no more a roving


Verse 4:

    C
Now you are no beggar
    F         G
You are some gentleman
    C                  F
For you have stolen my maidenhead
    C           G
And I am quite undone
  C
I am no lord, I am no squire
   F            G
Of beggars I be one
   C                 F
And beggars they be robbers all
    C               G
So now you're quite undone


Last Chorus:
      
      C
We'll go no more a roving
   F            G
A roving in the night
      C             F
We'll go no more a roving
        C             G
Let the moon shine so bright
       C    G      C (end)
We'll go no more a roving
