The Gypsy Rover - Lyrics

The gypsy rover came over the hill
Bound through the valley so shady
He whistled and he sang till the green woods rang
And he won the heart of the lady

Wah-dee-doo, Wah-dee-doo wah day
Wah-dee-doo, wha-dee-day
He whistled and he sang till the green woods rang
And he won the heart of the lady

She left her father's castle gate
She left her own fond lover
She left her servant and her estate
To follow the gypsy rover

(repeat REFRAIN)

Her father saddled his fastest steed
He roamed the valley all over
He sought his daughter at great speed
And the whistling gypsy rover

(repeat REFRAIN)

He rode till he came to a mansion fine
Down by the river Clayde
And there was music and there was wine
For the gypsy and his lady

(repeat REFRAIN)

"He is no gypsy, my father," she said
"But lord of freelands all over
And I will stay till my dying day
With my whistling gypsy rover"

(repeat REFRAIN)
