She left her father’s castle gates
She left her own fine lover
She left her servants and her state
To follow the gypsy rover.

Her father saddled up his fastest steed
And roamed the valleys all over
Sought his daughter at great speed
And the whistling 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 is no gypsy, my father” she said
“But lord of these lands all over,
And I shall stay ’til my dying day
With my whistling gypsy rover.”
