Jacqued,

I'm a Rover (6/8)
         
G with capo up 2

G / G / G / C / G / G / C / C / G
Chorus:
(G)I'm a/ rover and /(C)seldom (G)so/ber
I'm a /rover of/(C) high de(D)gree;/
And when I'm/(G) drinking, I'm /always(C) think-/(G)ing
How to /gain my love's/(D)compa-(G)ny./
(G) Though the /night be /(C)dark as(G)dun/geon,
not a /star to be /(C)seen a-(D)bove,/
I will be /(G)guided /without a (C)stum/(G)ble
into the /arms of me /(D)only (G)love./
I went up /to her /(C)bedroom (G)win/dow,
kneeling /gently up/(C)on a (D)stone;/
I rapped /(G) on her /bedroom(C) win /(G)dow
"My darlin' /dear, do you /(D)lie a(G)lone?"/

(G)She raised her head up from her (C)feather (G)pillow,
(G)raised her arms up a(C)round her (D)breast,
Saying (G)"Who's at my bedroom (C)win-(G)dow,
disturbing me at me (D)long night's (G)rest?"
"It's only me, your (C)own true (G)lover,
open the door and please (C)let me (D)in.
For I have (G)come on a long night's (C)jour-(G)ney
I am near drenched (D)to the (G)skin."
Chorus
G / G / G / C / G / G / C / D /
G / G / G / C / G / G / C / C / G......
(G)She opened the door (Hooray!) with the (C)greatest (G)pleasure,
opened the door and she (C)let me (D)in,
We both shook (G)hands and embraced each (C)o-(G)ther
until the morning we (D)lay as (G)one.
"Well now me love, I must (C)go and (G)leave you,
though the mountains be (C)high a-(D)bove
Well, I will (G)climb them with greater (C)plea-(G)sure
now that I've been with me (D)only (G)love."
Chorus
