Lyrics

Though the night be as dark as dungeon, not a star can be seen above
I will be guided without a stumble, into the arms of my own true love
I walked up to her bedroom window, kneeling gently upon a stone
I rapped on her bedroom window, my darling dear do you lie alone

I'm a rover, seldom sober, I'm a rover of high degree
It's when I'm drinkin' I'm always thinkin' how to gain my love's company

She raised her head from her pillow, with her arms acrossed her breast
Sayin who's at me bedroom window disturbing me at my long nights rest
It's me your own true lover, open the door please let me in
For I have come on a long nights journey and I'm near drenched to the skin

I'm a rover, seldom sober, I'm a rover of high degree
It's when I'm drinkin' I'm always thinkin' how to gain my love's company

She opened the door with the greatest pleasure, she opened the door and she let me in
They shook hands and embraced each other, until the morning they lay as one
My love I must leave you, though the mountains be high above
I will climb them with the greatest pleasure, that I've been with me only love

I'm a rover, seldom sober, I'm a rover of high degree
It's when I'm drinkin' I'm always thinkin' how to gain my love's company
