down thru the valley so shady.

He whistled and he sang
till the greenwoods rang.
And he won the heart of a lady.

she left her own true lover;
she left her servants and her estate
to follow the gypsy rover.

till the greenwoods rang.
And he won the heart of a lady.

and roamed the valley all over.

„He’s lord of freelands all over;
and I will stay till my dying day
with my whistling gypsy rover.“
