Gypsy Rover



1.
Gypsy rover come over the hill,
down thru the valley so shady.
He whistled and he sang
till the greenwoods rang.
And he won the heart of a Lady.

Refrain:
Ha dee doo, ha dee doo, ah dee day
Ha dee doo, ha dee day
He whistled and he sang
till the greenwoods rang.
And he won the heart of a lady.

2.
She left her father's castle gate;
she left her own true lover;
she left her servants and her estate
to follow the gypsy rover.

Refrain:

3.
Her father saddled his fastest steed
and roamed the valley all over.
He sought his daughter at great speed,
and the whistling gypsy rover.

Refrain:

4.
He came at last to a mansion fine
down by the River Clayde;
and there was music and there was wine
for the gypsy and his lady.

Refrain:

5.
"He's no gypsy, my father," said she,
"He's lord of freelands all over;
and I will stay till my dying day
with my whistling gypsy rover."

Refrain:
