Though the night is dark as dungeon
Not a star to be seen above
I will be guided without a stumble
Into the arms of my only love

I went up to her bedroom window
Kneelin' gently upon a stone
I rapped on her bedroom window
"My darlin' dear, do you lie alone?"

For I'm a rover, seldom sober
I'm a rover of high degree
When I'm drinking, I'm always thinking
How to gain my love's company

She raised her head from her feather pillow
Waived her arms up around her breasts
Saying, "Who's at my bedroom window
Disturbin' me at long night's rest?"

"It's only me, your own true lover
Open the door and please let me in
I have come on a long night's journey
And I'm near drenched to the skin"

For I'm a rover, seldom sober
I'm a rover of high degree
When I'm drinking, I'm always thinking
How to gain my love's company

She opened the door with the greatest pleasure
She opened the door and she let me in
We both shook hands and embraced each other
'Til the morning we lay as one

Well now, my love, I must go and leave you
Though the mountains be high above
Well I will climb them with greater pleasure
Now that I've been with me only love

For I'm a rover, seldom sober
I'm a rover of high degree
When I'm drinking, I'm always thinking
How to gain my love's company

For I'm a rover, seldom sober
I'm a rover of high degree
When I'm drinking, I'm always thinking
How to gain my love's company
