Lyrics

Gypsy rover, come over the hill
Down through the valley so shady
He whistled and he sang til the green woods rang
And he won the heart of a lady

Ah dee doo ah dee doo da day
Ah dee doo ah dee day dee
He whistled and he sang til the green woods rang
And he won the heart of a lady

She left her fathers castle gate
She left her own fine lover
She left her servants and her state
To follow the gypsy rover

Ah dee doo ah dee doo da day
Ah dee doo ah dee day dee
He whistled and he sang til the green woods rang
And he won the heart of a lady

Her father saddled up his fastest stead
Roamed the valleys all over
Sought his daughter at great speed
And the whistling gypsy rover

Ah dee doo ah dee doo da day
Ah dee doo ah dee day dee
He whistled and he sang til the green woods rang
And he won the heart of a lady

He came at last to a mansion fine
Down by the river Clady
And there was music and there was wine
For the gypsy and his lady

Ah dee doo ah dee doo da day
Ah dee doo ah dee day dee
He whistled and he sang til the green woods rang
And he won the heart of a lady

He is no gypsy, my father, she said
But lord of these lands all over
And I will stay til my dying day
With my whistling gypsy rover

Ah dee doo ah dee doo da day
Ah dee doo ah dee day dee
He whistled and he sang til the green woods rang
And he won the heart of a lady
