In Plymouth Town there lived a maid
Bless you young women
In Plymouth Town there lived a maid
Mind what I did say
In Plymouth Town there lived a maid
And she was mistress of her trade

I'll go no more a rovin’ with you fair maid
A rovin’ a rovin’ since roving’s been my ruin
I'll go no more a rovin’ with you fair maid

I took this fair maid for a walk
Bless you young women
And we had such a loving talk
Mind what I did say
I took this fair maid for a walk
And we had such a loving talk

I'll go no more a rovin’ with you fair maid
A rovin’ a rovin’ since roving’s been my ruin
I'll go no more a rovin’ with you fair maid

Her eyes are like two stars so bright
Bless you young women
Her face is fair her step is light
Mind what I did say
Her eyes are like two stars so bright
Her face is fair her step is light

I'll go no more a rovin’ with you fair maid
A rovin’ a rovin’ since roving’s been my ruin
I'll go no more a rovin’ with you fair maid

I put my arm around her waist
Bless you young women
She said Young man you're in great haste
Mind what I did say
I put my arm around her waist
She said young man you're in great haste

I'll go no more a rovin’ with you fair maid
A rovin’ a rovin’ since roving’s been my ruin
I'll go no more a rovin’ with you fair maid
