Where, where is the Rover,
Where ah! where is he gone,
I've saught him o'er the mountain,
I've saught him thro' the Storm.

Where, where is the Rover,
Where, where is he gone
I've saught him o'er the mountain
I've saught him thro' the storm
I've wander'd thro' the valley
No voice replies to me.
thro' the valley, thro' the valley,
No voice replies to me.

Where, where is the rover,
Where, where is the rover,
where, where, where, where, where can the rover be ah!
where can the rover be.

[Verse 2]
Still,still I love him
My passion proud to own
I live but to cherish
The love I'll ne'er disown
I'll seek him tho' the valley
Though dark the tempest be.
Where, where is &c.
