The Wild Rover
musician/member name: Entertainment
"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.
