Gypsy Rover Lyrics

The gypsy rover came over the hill
Down to the valley so shady
He whistled and he sang till the green woods rang
And he won the heart of a lady

Ah di doo ah di doo dah day - Ah di doo ah de day-di
He whistled and he sang till the green woods rang

And he won the heart of a lady
She left her father's castle gates
She left her own fond lover
She left her servants and estate
To follow the gypsy rover

Ah di doo ah di doo dah day - Ah di doo ah de day-di
He whistled and he sang till the green woods rang

Her father saddled up his fastest steed
He roamed the valleys all over
He sought his daughter at great speed
And the whistling Gypsy Rover

Ah di doo ah di doo dah day - Ah di doo ah de day-di
He whistled and he sang till the green woods rang

He came at last to a manson fine
Down by the river so shady
And there was music and there was wine
For the Gypsy and his lady

He is no gypsy my father she said
But Lord of these lands all over
And I will stay to my dying day
With my whistling Gypsy Rover

Ah di doo ah di doo dah day - Ah di doo ah de day-di
He whistled and he sang till the green woods rang
And he won the heart of a lady
