The Gypsy Rover

** "Songbook" Songbook.TheGypsyRover -> Songbook.FullName ontrail

By: Traditional[1]


C G C G C G C G
The gypsy rover came over the hill, and down through the valley so shady,
C G C F C F C F C G
He whistled and he sang till the green woods rang, and he won the heart of a la-dy
 
Chorus
C G C G C G C G
Ah-de-do, ah-de-do-da-day, ah-de-do, ah-de-day-de
C G C F C F C F C G
He whistled and he sang till the green woods rang, and he won the heart of a la-dy
 
C G C G C G C G
She left her father's castle gates, she left her own fine lover
C G C G C G C F C G
She left her servants and her estate, to follow the gypsy ro-ver
 
Chorus
 
C G C G C G C G
She left behind her velvet gown, and shoes of Spanish leather
C G C G C G C F C G
They whistled and they sang till the green woods rang, as they rode off toge-ther
 
Chorus
 
C G C G C G C G
Last night she slept on a goose feather bed, with silken sheets for cover
C G C G C G C F C G
Tonight she sleeps on the hard cold ground, beside her gypsy lo-ver
 
Chorus
 
C G C G C G C G
Her father saddled up his fastest steed, and roamed the valleys all over
C G C G C G C F C G
He sought his daughter at great speed, and the whistling gypsy ro-ver
 
Chorus
 
C G C G C G C G
He came at last to a mansion fine, down by the river Claydee
C G C G C G C F C G
And there was music and there was wine, for the gypsy and his la-dy
 
Chorus
 
C G C G C G C G
"Have you forsaken your house and home? have you forsaken your baby?
C G C G C G C F C G
Have you forsaken your husband dear, for a whistling gypsy ro-ver?"
 
Chorus
 
C G C G C G C G
"He is no gypsy, my father" she said, "but lord of these free land all over
C G C G C G C F C G
And I will stay till my dying day, with my whistling gypsy ro-ver"
 
Chorus * 2
