As I Roved Out The Clancy Brothers Version Of This Old Irish Folk Song, Tommy Makem is also included here on the youtube version. There are several different songs called ''As I Roved Out'' and they all have the same message about meeting a girl on a May morning and trying to ''Get Off With Her'' , enough said.

As [Am]I roved out on a [C]May morning,
On a [Am]May morning right [Em]early,
I [Am]met my love u[G]pon the way,
Oh, [Am]Lord, but [G]she was [Am]early.


Chorus
And [Am]she sang lilt-da-doo-dle, lilt-a-doo-dle, lilt-a-doo-dle-dee,
And [G]she hi-da-land-da-dee, and she [Em]hi-da-land-da-dee, and she [Am]lan-dae.

Her [Am]boots were black and her [C]stockings white,
And her [Am]buckles shone like [Em]silver;
She [Am]had a dark and a [G]rolling eye,
And her [Am]earrings [G]tipped her [Am]shoulders.

Chorus

"What [Am]age are you, my [C]nice sweet girl?
What [Am]age are you, my [Em]honey?"
How [Am]modestly she [G]answered me,
"I'll [Am]be six[G]teen age on [Am]Sunday."


Chorus

I [Am]went to the house on the [C]top of the hill
When the [Am]moon was shining [Em]clearly;
[Am]She arose to [G]let me in,
For her [Am]mammy [G]chanced to [Am]hear her.


Chorus

She [Am]caught her by the [C]hair of the head,
And [Am]down to the room she [Em]brought her;
And [Am]with the root of a [G]hazel twig,
She [Am]was the [G]well-beat [Am]daughter.


Chorus

"Will you [Am]marry me now, my [C]soldier lad?
[Am]Marry me now or [Em]never?
Will you [Am]marry me now, my [G]soldier lad?
For you [Am]see I'm [G]done for[Am]ever."


Chorus

"No, I [Am]won't marry you, my [C]bonny wee girl,
I [Am]won't marry you, my [Em]honey,
For [Am]I have got a [G]wife at home,
And [Am]how could [G]I dis[Am]own her?"


Chorus

A [Am]pint a night is [C]my delight,
And a [Am]gallon in the [Em]morning;
The [Am]old women are my [G]heartbreak,
But the [Am]young ones [G]is my [Am]darling.

Chorus
