I've been a wild rover for many's the year and I've spent all me money on whiskey and beer and now I'm returning with gold in great store and I never will play the wild rover no more Chorus: No more will I play the wild rover no, never, no more And it's no, nay, never no, nay, never! I went into an alehouse I used to frequent and I told the landlady me money was spent I asked her for credit, I took from me pocket ten sovereigns bright and the landlady's eyes opened up with delight she answered me nay such a custom as yours I could have any day she said she had whiskeys and wines of the best and the words that she told me were only in jest and I asked them to pardon their prodigal son I went home to my parents, confessed what I'd done and when they'd caressed me as oft times before I never will play the wild rover no more
