The gypsy rover came over the hill
Down through the valley so shady
He whistled and he sang till the green woods rang
And he won the heart of a lady

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

She left her father's castle gate
Left her own fond lover, left her servants
And her estate
To follow the gypsy rover

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

Her father saddled his fastest steed
Searched these valleys all over
Seeking his daughter at great speed
And the whistlin' gypsy rover

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

At last he came to a castle gate
Along the river Claydee
And there was music and there was wine
For the gypsy and his lady

Ah dee do, ah dee do da day
Ah dee do, ah dee day dee
He whistled and he sang till 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 till my dying day
With the whistlin' gypsy rover

Ah dee do, ah dee do da day
Ah dee do, ah dee day dee
He whistled and he sang till the green woods rang
Till the green woods rang, till the green woods rang
And he won the heart of a lady
