Song Lyrics

Here Comes a Song

The Gypsy Rover came over the hill,
Down thru the valley so shady;
He whistled and he sang til the greenwood rang,
And he won the heart of a lady.

A dee do a dee do die day,
A dee do a dee day-o
He whistled and he sang til the greenwood rang,
And he won the heart of a lady.

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.

A dee do a dee do die day,
A dee do a dee day-o
He whistled and he sang til the greenwood rang,
And he won the heart of a lady.

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

A dee do a dee do die day,
A dee do a dee day-o
He whistled and he sang til the greenwood rang,
And he won the heart of a lady.

Lachy!

The Gypsy Rover came over the hill,
Down thru the valley so shady;
He whistled and he sang til the greenwood rang,
And he won the heart of a lady.

A dee do a dee do die day,
A dee do a dee day-o
He whistled and he sang til the greenwood rang,
And he won the heart of a lady.

She left her home her castle great
she left her fair young lover
she left her servants and her estate
to follow the Gypsy Rover.

A dee do a dee do die day,
A dee do a dee day-o
He whistled and he sang til the greenwood rang,
And he won the heart of a lady.

Her father saddled up his fastest steed
roamed the valleys all over
sought his daughter at great speed
and the whistlin' Gypsy Rover.

A dee do a dee do die day,
A dee do a dee day-o
He whistled and he sang
Til the greenwood rang,
And he won the heart of a lady.

He came unto a mansion fine,
Down by the river Claydee
And there was music and there was wine,
For the gypsy and his lady.

A dee do a dee do die day,
A dee do a dee day-o
He whistled and he sang til the greenwood rang,
And he won the heart of a lady.

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

A dee do a dee do die day,
A dee do a dee day-o
He whistled and he sang til the greenwood rang,
And he won the heart of a lady.
