    Lyrics

    I am a freeborn man of the traveling people
    Got no fixed abode, were no man is your master
    Country lanes and byways where always my ways
    I Never fancied being lumbered

    In the open field you could stop and linger
    And the small birds sang when wintertime was over
    Then you'd pack your load and be on the road
    They were good old times for the rover

    Sometimes we'd meet up with other people
    Hear the news or else swap family information
    At the country fairs, we'd be meeting there
    All the peoples of the traveling nation

    I made willow creels and the heather besom
    and I've even done some begging and some hawking
    And I've lain there spent wrapped up in my tent
    and I've listened to the old folk talking

    All you freeborn men of the traveling people
    Every tinker, rolling stone, or gypsy rover
    Winds of change are blowing, old ways are going
    Your traveling days will soon be over

    I am a freeborn man of the traveling people
    Got no fixed abode, where no man is your master
    Country lanes and byways were always my ways
    I Never fancied going faster
