The Gypsy Rover

Whistling Gypsy came over the hill,
Down thru the valley so shady;
He whistled & he sang
til the greenwood rang,
And he won the heart of a lady.
A dee do a dee do die day,
A dee do a dee day-o
He whistled & he sang
Til the greenwood rang,
And he won the heart of a lady.

2. She left her father's castle gate,
She left her fair young lover;
She left her servants
And her estate
To follow the gypsy rover.
A dee do a dee do die day,
A dee do a dee day-o
She left her servants
And her estate
to follow the gypsy rover.

3. She left behind her velvet gown,
And shoes of Spanish leather;
They whistled & they sang
Till the greenwood rang,
As they rode off together.
A dee do a dee do die day,
A dee do a dee day-o
They whistled & they sang
Till the greenwood rang,
As they rode off together.

4. Last night she slept on a gose feather bed
With silken sheets for cover;
Tonight she sleeps
On the cold, cold ground
Beside her gypsy lover.
A dee do a dee do die day,
A dee do a dee day-o
Tonight she sleeps
On the cold, cold ground
Beside her gypsy lover.
