The Gypsy Rover (The Highwaymen)
This is a beautiful song, recorded by The Highwaymen in 1961. If anybody knows how to upload a song onto this blog, it would be really nice to have this song uploaded.
"Ah-di-do, ah-di-do-da-dayAh-di-do, ah-di-day-dee. He whistled and he sang 'til the green woods rang and he won the heart of the lady.
The gypsy rover came over the hill,
Down through the valley shady,
He whistled and he sang ‘til the green woods rang
And he won the heart of the lady.
She left her father's castle gate, left her own fond lover. She left her servants and her states to follow the gypsy rover.
Her father saddled his fastest steed and roamed the valleys all over. He searched for his daughter at great speed and the whistlin' 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's no gypsy, my Father, she said,But Lord of these lands all over and I will stay 'til my dyin' day with my whistlin' gypsy rover.
