The Wild Rover


musician/member name: Entertainment
Duration: 00:03:33
description:
"The Wild Rover" is possibly the most widely performed Irish pub song, although its exact origins are unknown. The song tells the story of a young man who has been away from his hometown for many years. Returning to his former alehouse the landlady refuses him credit, until he presents the gold which he has gained while he has been away. He sings of how his days of roving are over and he intends to return to his home and settle down.

Nice rendition of this song, Gordon! I like your tempo...most versions tend to be faster...I can actually understand the words when you sing it.grin

Thanks Steven, I appreciate that you take the time to listen and comment. Just so you are aware the slower tempo is more by necessity than design.grin
