The Whistling Gypsy
( The Gypsy Rover)
Below are the words to the Irish folk song "The Whistling Gypsy"
The whis-ling gyp-sy came o-ver the hill,
Down through the val-ley so sha-dy,
whist-led and he sang ' till the green wood rang.
he won the heart of a la----dy.
Ah dee doo, ah dee doo die day, Ah dee dooah dee day - dee,
He whist-led and he sang ' till the green wood rang,
And he won the heart of a la----dy.
2. She left her father's castle gate, She left her fair young lover, She left her servants and her estate, To follow the gypsy rover.
3.She left behind velvet gowns, And shoes of Spanish leather, They whistled and they sang till the green wood rang As they rode off together.
4. Last night she slept on a goose-feather bed, With satin sheets for to cover. Tonight she sleeps on the cold, cold ground, Besides her gypsy rover.
