Wild Rover Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I've been a wild rover for many's the year
And I've spent all me money on whiskey and beer
But now I'm returning with gold in great store
And I never will play the wild rover no more
Verse 2
And it's no, nay, never
No, nay, never no more
Will I play the wild rover
No, never no more
Verse 3
I went into an alehouse I used to frequent
And I told the landlady me money was spent
I asked her for credit, she answered me "nay"
"Such a custom as yours I can have every day"
Verse 4
And it's no, nay, never
No, nay, never no more
Will I play the wild rover
No, never no more
Verse 5
I then took from me pocket ten sovereigns bright
And the landlady's eyes opened wide with delight
She says "I have whiskeys and wines of the best"
And the words that you tolt me were only in jest
Verse 6
And it's no, nay, never
No, nay, never no more
Will I play the wild rover
No, never no more
Verse 7
I'll home to my parents, confess what I'd done
And I'll ask them to pardon their prodigal son
And when they've caressed me as ofttimes before
I never will play the wild rover no more
Verse 8
And it's no, nay, never
No, nay, never no more
Will I play the wild rover
No, never no more
Verse 9
And it's no, nay, never
No, nay, never no more
Will I play the wild rover
No, never no more
