The Wild Rover

A traditional Irish song - be sure to find someone to clap at the
appropriate times (if you don't know where those are, you should
drink more Guinness.)

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


         D7                 G                          C
And it’s no, ney, never, . . . . . . no, nay, never no more
       G             C         G     D7  G
I will play the wild rover, no never no  more

[End Chorus]
I brought up from me pocket ten souvereigns bright
        G          D7                      G
And the landlady’s eyes opened wide with delight
She said "I have whiskey and wine’s of the best"
        G                 D7                   G
And the words that you’ve told me were only in jest


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