The Wild Rover

Spancell Hill

Island Spnning Song

Black is The Coulour



From Clare To Here           partition

Chorus :

Well there's four of us who share the room,

We work hard for the brass.

And getting up late on Sunday.

I never get to mass.

It's a long, long way from Clare to here

It's a long, long way from Clare to here.

Oh, it's a long, long way it gets further day by day

It's a long, long way from Clare to here


When Friday night come 'round again I'm only into fighting.

My ma would like a letter home but I'm too tires for writing.


And the only time I feel alright is when I'm into drinking

It eases off the pain a bit, it levels out my thinking.


Well it almost breaks my heart when I think of Josephine

I told her I'd be coming back with pockets full of green.


I dream I hear a piper play maybe it's a notion

I dream I see white horses dance upon that other ocean.



The Wild Rover          partition


Refrain :

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.

And it’s no, nay, never, no, nay, never, no more,

Will I play the wild rover, no, never, no more.


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,

Sure it’s custom like yours I can have any day”.


I took from my pocket ten sovereigns bright,

And the landlady’s eyes opened wide with delight.

She said “I have whiskey and wines of the best,

And the words that I spoke, they were only in jest”.


I’ll go home to my parents, confess what I’ve done,

And I’ll ask them to pardon their prodigal son.

And if they caress me as oft times before,

Then I never will play the wild rover no more.
