Wild Rover
(c)2013 Casia

(V1)
They say I'm a knave
I hold my scotch dear
I love all the ladies
I see through me beer
Every barstool
That I sit upon
Is part of a game
And I'm playin' me pawn

(Chorus)
Wild rover
As wild as can be
As rough as the sea
That's what they call me
A wild rover
Never stays in one place
I keep on roving
At my own pace

(V2)
Iím not a scoundrel
It's not in my soul
My heart can't be chained
By a ball or by gold
The tears of the women
Blow dry with the breeze
The salt in their eyes
Makes me heart freeze

(Bridge)
I'm wild
A rover they say
When I'm old and grey
That's when I'll pay

(V3)
There once was a lady
That I held dear
I'd be picking daisies
If she were still here
But she didn't like
The life that I lead
So she said good-bye
But my heart still bleeds

(Chorus)
Wild rover
As wild as can be
As rough as the sea
That's what they call me
A wild rover
Never stays in one place
I keep on roving
At me own pace

(Outro)
I'm wild
Wild they say
I'll be wild tomorrow
And I'm wild today
