I’m a Rover – Dubliners
Tab’d by wompton

Capo on 2nd fret

[CHORUS]
G               C        G
I'm a rover and seldom sober
                       D
I'm a rover, o' high degree
              G                    C   G
It’s when I'm drinking, I'm always thinking
G                     D   G
How to gain my love's company


[VERSE 1] 
G                   C          G
Though the night be dark as dungeon
                       D 
No' a star can be seen above,
          G                C   G
I will be guided without a stumble
G                   D        G
Into the arms o' my own true love


[CHORUS]
G               C        G
I'm a rover and seldom sober
                       D
I'm a rover, o' high degree
              G                    C   G
It’s when I'm drinking, I'm always thinking
G                     D   G
How to gain my love's company


[VERSE 2]
G                    C          G 
He stepped up to her bedroom window,
                       D 
Kneelin' gently upon a stone
             G                   C  G
He whispered through her bedroom-window
G                        D     G
"My Darlin' dear, do you lie alone?"


[CHORUS]
G               C        G
I'm a rover and seldom sober
                       D
I'm a rover, o' high degree
              G                    C   G
It’s when I'm drinking, I'm always thinking
G                     D   G
How to gain my love's company


[VERSE 3] 
G                            C             G 
She raised her head from her down-white pillow
                           D 
Through her arms about her breast,
            G                  C  G
"say who is that at my bedroom window
G                   D            G
Disturbin' me at my long night's rest?"


[CHORUS]
G               C        G
I'm a rover and seldom sober
                       D
I'm a rover, o' high degree
              G                    C   G
It’s when I'm drinking, I'm always thinking
G                     D   G
How to gain my love's company


[VERSE 4] 
           G              C          G
“Says I my love it’s, thy own true lover,
                         D 
Open the door and let me in.
           G                     C  G
For I have come on a long nights journey,
G                     D      G
And I'm near drenched to the skin."


[CHORUS]
G               C        G
I'm a rover and seldom sober
                       D
I'm a rover, o' high degree
              G                    C   G
It’s when I'm drinking, I'm always thinking
G                     D   G
How to gain my love's company


[VERSE 5] 
               G             C            G 
She opened the door with the greatest pleasure,
                                    D 
She opened the door and she let him in,
                 G                       C  G
They baith shook hands and embraced each other
  G                    D      G
Until the mornin' they lay as one


[CHORUS]
G               C        G

                       D

How to gain my love's company

 
[VERSE 6] 
G                           C               G
The cocks were crowin', the birds were whistlin'
                                  D 
The burns they ran free abune the brae
           G           C            G
"Says I my lass, I'm a ploughman laddie
G                D     G
And the farmer I must obey."


[CHORUS]
G               C        G
I'm a rover and seldom sober
                       D
I'm a rover, o' high degree
              G                    C   G
It’s when I'm drinking, I'm always thinking
G                     D   G
How to gain my love's company


[VERSE 7] 
G                      C            G
Says I my love, I must go and leave you
                                  D 
And climb the hills they are far above,
           G                       C   G
But I will climb with the greatest pleasure
G                   D          G
Since I been in the arms o' my love.

G                     D   G
How to gain my love's company
