Wild Rover Chords

     G                            C
I've been a Wild Rover for many a year
         G            D                    G    C
And I've spent all my money on whiskey and beer
G                                        C
And now I'm returning with gold in great store
      G          D                      G
And I never will play the Wild Rover no more.
[ Tab from: ]
And it's no, nay, never
G               C
No nay never no more
       G             C    Am
Will I play the Wild Rover
   D         G
No never, no more.

I went to an alehouse I used to frequent
And I told the landlady my money was spent
I asked her for a Red Stripe, she answered me "nay"
She said, "Patrons like you, I can get any day!"

And it's no, nay, never..

From out of my pockets I took moneys bright
And the landlady's eyes opened wide with delight
She said, "I have Red Stripes, and wines of the best,
And the words that I said, son, were only in jest!"

And it's no, nay, never....

I'll go back to Jamaica and lie in the sun
But I will play the part of the prodigal son
And if my girl loves me, as oft' times before
Then I never will play the Wild Rover no more.

And it's no, nay, never...
