I remeber Andy sung: "I spent all my money on whiskey and beer" like the texts I've found.

But he sung:
In all my wild roven just 1 thing was wrong,
The days were too short and the days were too long,

and
"Last night i was free, these were the last words that she said to me".

Anyone?

Why do you think the other one had to insert the "M"?
Seriously though; The question is unclear. I thought the guest "Sam" was referring to Andy Stewart.

Okay - so the "M" stands for "Makebelieve"? Or, 'Maginary?

Allmusic.com calls him Andy B. Stewart, but as far as I know, he always recorded as Andy Stewart.

The only recording of WILD ROVER that Allmusic.com lists for Andy Stewart is this medley:

My Ain Hoose/Westering Home/Wild Mountain Thyme/Horee-Horo/Wild Rover

I went into an alehouse I used to frequent
Told the landlady I was a tight scotchman
Piss off she said we don't want mean porridge quaffers here
I saw an englishman and cadged a pint of beer

And it's no nay never, never pay for your beer
For I'll get out me wallet no never nay more

I hate catholics and I've got ginger hair
A nasty bigot you cannot compare
I'd go to my parents but the hate me too
So I'll get drunk and curse the pope dressed in blue

And it's no nay never, never pay for your beer
For I'll get out me wallet no never nay more

Thank you Kenneth and may The Good Lord bless and keep you always. In the name of The Father, The Son, and The Holy Ghost, Amen.


That's a wee blessing from a Catholic, straight to you.
You can't wash it off or spit it out.
You are, I'm pleased to say, stuck with it. (At least until you learn how to pass it on.)

I've found the Wild Rover song with Andy on the "20 Scottish favourties" cd (http://www.amazon.co.uk/20-Scottish-Favourites-Andy-Stewart/dp/B00005BCHZ).
I would really love if I could get this, thank you!

Subject: More than one Andy
From: OtherDave

People who only know Andy M. Stewart, formerly of Silly Wizard, may never have heard (or heard of) another Scottish singer with the easily confused name of Andy Stewart. Andy No-M, as I'll call him here, was an entertainer who worked the same vein as Sir Harry Lauder before him -- a heavy bundle of tartan enthusiasm and not a little Scottoonery.

(Look for "Andy Stewart" on Wikipedia, and you'll get a page that makes the distinction between Andy M of Silly Wizard and Andy No-M, as well as several other, non-singing Stewarts.)

Andy No-M, who died at 59 in 1993, is perhaps most famous for the comic song, "Donald, Whar's Yer Troosers?" along with other "traditional favo(u)rites" like "A Scottish Soldier."

(By way of analogy, had he been Irish, Andy No-M might have been much likelier to sing "Danny Boy" than "Four Green Fields.")

Silly Wizard Andy's middle name is MacGregor; he may have adopted the "M" as a way of making clear, at least to Scottish audiences, that he was not their father's Andy Stewart.

Quite simply, the older Andy Stewart was much better known; and still is. Andy 'M' needed to establish a separate identity for himself.

This tends to confuse newcomers, who typically have no idea at all about it, imagining that their limited experience (they have generally only heard of Andy 'M') is all that there is.

Too true, Malcolm.

Did you know that Paul McCartney used to be in a band called Wings?

I also liked AS version of "The Wild Rover".
I get the feeling that it's about a wanderer who has tried to stop drink all his life, but never succeeded. It was long ago since I heard it, though.

Hello again!
Thank you for all answers.
I think one verse is like this:

I've travelled all over through city and town,
Ah, the prices goes up and the whisky goes down.
In all my wild rovin' just one thing was wrong,
Oh, the nights were too short and the days were too long.

Any help would be appreciated.
