GYPSY ROVER (Leo Maguire)


    G                C        G                                Em D
The gypsy rover came over the hill, down through the valley so shady, 
   G                             Em                      G       C          G C G
He whistled and he sang 'til the greenwoods rang, and he won the heart of a la--dy. 

Chorus: 
	G               C     G                    Em D
	Ah-de-do, ah-de-do-da-day, ah-de-do, ah-de-da-ay 
	   G                             Em                      G       C          G C G
	He whistled and he sang 'til the greenwoods rang, and he won the heart of a la--dy. 

She left her father's castle gates, she left her own fine lover 
She left her servants and her state to follow the gypsy rover. 

Chorus: 

Her father saddled up his fastest steed and roamed the valleys all over 
Sought his daughter at great speed and the whistling gypsy rover. 

Chorus: 

He came at last to a mansion fine, down by the river Claydee 
And there was music and there was wine, for the gypsy and his lady. 

Chorus: 

"He is no gypsy, my father" she said,	"but lord of these lands all over, 
And I shall stay 'til my dying day with my whistling gypsy rover." 

Chorus:
