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

Chorus:
Adi-doo, adi-doo da day
Adi-doo, adi-day dee
He whistled and he sang 'til the green woods rang
And he won the heart of a lady

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

Her father settled up his fasted steed
Roamed the valleys all over

Sought his daughter at great speed
And the whistling gypsy rover

He came at last to a mansion fine
Down by the river Clady
And there was music and there was wine
For the gypsy and his lady

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