A gypsy rover came over the hill, into the valley shady;
He whistled and he sang til the green wood rang,
And he won the heart of a lady.

She left her father's castle gate, she left her own true lover;
She left her servants and her estate
To follow her gypsy rover.

He whistled and he sang til the green woods rang
And he won the heart of a lady.

Her father mounted his fastest steed, 
And searched the valley all over;
He sought his daughter at great speed
And the whistling gypsy rover.

At last he came to a mansion fine, down by the river Claydee,
And there was music and there was wine
For the gypsy and his lady.


"He is no gypsy, my father," she cried,
"But Lord of these lands all over,
And I shall stay til my dying day
With my whistling gypsy rover."
