I'm a Rover
Though the night be dark as dungeon
Not a star to be
I will be guided without a stumble
To the arms of me own true love.
I went up to her bedroom window,
Kneelin' gently upon
I rapped on her bedroom window
"Darlin' dear, do you lie alone?"
I'm a rover, seldom sober
a rover of high degree
And when I'm drinking, I'm always thinking
How to gain my love's company.
She raised her head from her feather pillow
arms up about her breast,
Saying "Who's at me bedroom window
Disturbin' me at me long night's rest?"
"It's only me, your own true lover,
Open the door and
please let me in.
For I have come on a lonely journey,
And I'm near drenched to the skin."
She opened the door with the greatest pleasure,
the door and she let me in,
We both shook hands and embraced each other
'Til the mornin' we lay as one.
Well now, me love, I must go and leave you
mountains be high above,
I will climb them with greater pleasure
That I've been with me only love.
