[Verse]
D                          Em
This tune was compos-ed by Spencer the Rover
   D                Em
As valiant a man as ever left home
       G                      Dm              A7
He had been much reduc-ed and caused great confusion
    D                      Em         D
And that was the reason he started to roam


[Verse]
D                                    Em
In Yorkshire, near Rotherham, he had been on the ramble
D                      Em
Weary of travelling he sat down to rest
       G                           Dm            A7
By the foot of yon mountain lays a clear flowing fountain
     D                        Em            D
With bread and cold water, he himself did refresh


[Verse]
D                                       Em
With the night fast approaching, to the woods he resorted
D                         Em
With woodbine and ivy his bed for to make
       G                       Dm          A7
But he dreamt about sighing, lamenting and crying
   D                       Em          D
Go home to your family and rambling forsake


[Verse]
D                                   Em
Twas the fifth day of November I’ve reason to remember
     D                            Em
When first he arrived home to his family and friends
         G                    Dm           A7
They did stand so astounded, amazed and dumfounded
   D                        Em            D
To see such a stranger once more in their sight


[Verse]
D                                           Em
And his children come around him with their prittle-prattling stories
           D                            Em
With their prittle-prattling stories to drive care away
            G                      Dm           A7
And he’s as happy as those as have thousands of riches
   D                           Em      D
Contented he’ll remain and not ramble away


[Verse]
D                          Em
This tune was compos-ed by Spencer the Rover
   D                 Em
As valiant a man as ever left home
       G                      Dm              A7
He had been much reduc-ed and caused great confusion
    D                      Em         D
And that was the reason he started to roam
