Girl, don't tell me that it's morning
Can we keep the curtains drawn?
Haven't given you fair warning
But our ship, she sails at dawn

And it's true I must be going but I swear I won't be long
There isn't that much ocean between Boston and St John's
I'm a rover, and I'm bound to sail away
I'm a rover, can you love me anyway?

If some suitor comes approaching
Will you let him through your door?
And what if I return half-broken
Will you still want me anymore?

It's true I must be going but I swear I won't be long
There isn't that much ocean between Boston and St John's
I'm a rover, and I'm bound to sail away
I'm a rover, can you love me anyway?

Close your eyes and dream and tell me what you see
You can tell me what you want just tell me that you'll wait for me

But, oh, don't tell me that it's morning
Can we keep the curtains drawn?
I haven't given you fair warning
But our ship, she sails at dawn

And it's true I must be going but I swear I won't be long
There isn't that much ocean between Boston and St John's
I'm a rover, and I'm bound to sail away
I'm a rover, can you love me anyway?
Love me anyway, love me anyway
