  • I've been a wild wild rover
    Sailed all over the sea
    But this thing that makes me wonder
    Has made a fool of me

    For it took me from my childhood
    Underneath the stars and skies
    And I still hear the wind
    Whistling through the wild wood, whispering goodbye

    It's home boys home
    She's home boys home
    No matter
    Where I roam

    If you see my mother
    Please give her all of my love
    For she has a heart of gold there
    As good as God above

    If you see my mother
    Tell her I'm keeping fine
    Tell her that I love her
    And I'll try and write sometime Writer/s: PHILIP PARRIS LYNOTT
