  • The Roving Kind
  • Guy Mitchell
  • Written by Jesse Cavanaugh and Arnold Stanton
  • Peaked at # 4 in 1951
  • Competing versions by The Weavers hit # 11 and by Rex Allen hitt #20.
  • Adapted from the old 1800s English folk song "The Pirate Ship."
  • (She had a dark and a-rovin' eye-uh-eye and her hair hung down in ring-a-lets)
  • (She was a nice girl, a proper girl butone of the rovin' kind)
  • As I cruised out one eve-e-ning upon a night's career
  • I spied a lofty clipper ship and to her I did steer
  • I heisted out my sig-a-nals which she so quickly knew
  • And when she saw my bunting fly she imme-diately hove to-woo-woo
  • (She had a dark and a-rovin' eye-uh-eye and her hair hung down in ring-a-lets)
  • (She was a nice girl, a proper girl butone of the rovin' kind)
  • I took her for some fish and chips and treated her so fine
  • And hardly did I realize she was the rovin' kind
  • I kissed her lips, I missed her lips and found to my surprise
  • She was nothin' but a pirate ship rigged up in a dis-guy-eye-ise
  • (She had a dark and a-rovin' eye-eye-eye)
  • And her hair hung down in ring-a-lets
  • (She was a nice girl, a proper girl butone of the rovin' kind)
  • So, come all ye good sailor men who sail the wintry sea
  • And come, all ye apprentice lads, a warnin' take from me
  • Beware of lofty clipper ships, they'll be the ruin of you
  • For 'twas there she made mewalk the plank and pushed me under, too-ooh-ooh
  • (She had a dark and a-rovin' eye-uh-eye and her hair hung down in ring-a-lets)
  • She was a nice girl, a proper girl butone of the rovin' kind
  • (She was a nice girl, a proper girl but)
  • One of the rovin' kind (yo-ho!)
