Seekers, The - A-Rovin' Lyrics




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

Seekers, The A-Rovin' Comments
  1. Jeff Schroeder

    Recorded in 1963, in Australia, before their success in England. What is nice to hear is that all voices are given pretty much equal balance.

  2. Annie Helman

    Lovely! Interesting arrangement too. Judith's voice is more of a subtle, yet clear and unmissable overtone. This group simply couldn't do wrong.
