THE GYPSY ROVER

THE GYPSY ROVER CAME OVER THE HILL, DOWN THROUGH
THE VALLEY SO SHADY, HE WHISTLED AND HE SANG 'TILL THE GREEN WOODS
RANG, AND HE WON THE HEART OF A LADY. (CHORUS) AU-DE-DO-AUDEE
DO-DA DAE, (2 TIMES) HE WHISTLED AND HE SANG 'TILL THE GREEN WOODS
RANG, AND HE WON THE HEART OF A LADY. SHE LEFT HER FATHER'S
CASTLE GATE, SHE LEFT HER OWN TRUE LOVER, SHE LEFT HER SERVANTS AND
HER ESTATES, TO FOLLOW THE GYPSY ROVER. (CHORUS) HER FATHER SADDLED
HIS FASTEST STEED, AND SEARCHED THE VALLEY ALL OVER, HE SOUGHT HIS
DAUGHTER AT GREAT SPEED, AND THE WHISTLING GYPSY ROVER. (CHORUS)
AT LAST 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.
(CHORUS) HE'S NO GYPSY, MY FATHER, SAID SHE. MY LORD OF FREELANDS
ALL OVER, AND I WILL STAY 'TILL MY DYING DAY, WITH MY GYPSY ROVER.
(CHORUS)
