This tune was composed by Spencer the Rover
3 2
As valiant a man as ever left home
4 5 6
And he had been much reduced which caused great confusion
3 2 3 2
And that was the reason he started to roam.

3 2
In Yorkshire near Rotherham, he had been on the ramble
3 2
Weary of travelling, he sat down to rest
4 5 6
By the foot of yon' mountain lays a clear flowing fountain
3 2 3 2
With bread and cold water he himself did refresh.

3 2
With the night fast approaching, to the woods he resorted
3 2
With wood, vine and ivy his bed for to make
4 5 6
But he dreamt about sighing lamenting and crying
3 2 3 2
Go home to your family and rambling forsake.

3 2
Twas the fifth day of November, I've reason to remember
3 2
When first he arrived home to his family and friends
4 5 6
And they did stand so astounded surprised and dumbfounded
3 2 3 2
To see such a stranger once more in their sight.

And his children come around him with their

prittle prattling stories
3 2
With their prittle prattling stories to drive care away
4 5 6
And he's as happy as those as have thousands of riches
3 2 3 2
Contented he'll remain and not ramble away.
