Whistling Gypsy
Traditional Irish Songs


A gypsy rover came over the hill, Down through the valley so shady
He whistled and he sang till the green woods rang And he won the heart of the lady

Chorus:
Ah-dee-doo Ah-dee-doo-dah-day Ah-dee-doo Ah-dee-day-dee
He whistled and he sang till the green woods rang And he won the heart of the lady

She left her father's castle gate She left her own fond lover
She left her servants and her estate He came at last to a mansion fine
To follow the gypsy rover Down by the river Culadee
And there was music and there was wine Her father sent up his fastest steed
With the gypsy and his lady Roamed the valleys all over Sought his daughter at
great speed He is no gypsy, my father, she said, And the whistling gypsy
rover. But lord of these lands all over And I will stay till my dying day
With the whistling gypsy rover
