I chase your every footstep and I follow every whim
When you call the tune, I'm ready to strike up the battle hymn, hey
My lady of the meadows, my comber on the beach
You've thrown the stick [Incomprehensible] but it's floating out of reach

The long road is a rainbow and the pot of gold lies there, yeah
So slip the chain and I'm off again, you'll find me everywhere
'Cause I'm a rover

As the robin craves the summer to hide his smock of red
I need the pillow of your hair in which to hide my head
I'm simple in my sadness, resourceful in remorse
Then I'm down straining at the lead, holding on the windward course

The long road is a rainbow and the pot of gold lies there, yeah
So slip the chain and I'm off again, you'll find me everywhere
'Cause I'm a rover

Strip me from the bundle of balloons at every fair
Colorful and carefree, they're designed to make you stare
But I'm lost and I'm losing the thread that holds me down
And I'm up, hot and rising in the lights of every town

The long road is a rainbow and the pot of gold lies there, yeah
So slip the chain and I'm off again, you'll find me everywhere
'Cause I'm a rover
