Gypsy Rover

Melody - Seq. by Barry Taylor
Line

Chorus:
Ah-di-do, ah-di-do-da-day
Ah-di-do, ah-di-day-dee
He whistled and he sang
'Til the green woods rang
And he won the heart of a lady.

She left her father's castle gate
Left her own true lover
She left her servants and her estates
To follow the gypsy rover.
Chorus:

2. Her father saddled his fastest steed
And roamed the valleys all over
He searched for his daughter at great speed
And the whistlin' gypsy rover.
Chorus:

3. He came at last to a mansion fine
Down by the river Clady
And there was music, and there was wine
For the gypsy and his lady.
Chorus:

4. He's no gypsy, my Father, she said,
But Lord of these lands all over
And I will stay 'til my dyin' day
With my whistlin' gypsy rover.
Chorus:
