The Gypsy Rover by Anonymous

A Gypsy Rover came over the hill,
And down through the valley so shady.
He whistled and he sang 'til the green woods rang,
And he won the heart of a lady.

Ha Dee Do Ha Do Da Dae
Ha Dee Do Ha Dee Dae Dee
He Whistled And He Sang 'Til The Green Woods Rang
And He Won The Heart Of A Lady
She Left Her Father's Castle Gate
Left Her Own Fond Lover
Left Her Servants And Her Estates
To Follow The Gypsy Rover

Her Father Saddled His Fastest Steed
And Roamed The Valleys All Over
He Searched For His Daughter With Great Speed
Her And The Gypsy Rover

Came At Last to A Mansion Fine
Down By The River Clady
And There Was Music, Lights And Wine
For The Gypsy And His Lady
He Is No Gypsy, M' Father, She Said
But Lord Of These Lands All Over
And I Will Stay 'Til My Dyin' Day
With My Whistlin' Gypsy Rover.
