The Dubliners was an Irish folk band founded in Dublin, Ireland, in 1962. One of the most influential Irish acts of the 20th century, they celebrated 50 years together in 2012, making them Ireland's longest surviving musical act. Also in 2012, the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards bestowed them with a Lifetime Achievement Award. The group announced their retirement in the autumn of 2012 following the death of founding member Barney McKenna (born 16 December 1939; died 5 April 2012). The surviving members of the group - with the exception of John Sheahan - continue touring under the name of "The Dublin Legends".

    As I was a goin' over the far famed Kerry mountains
    I met with captain Farrell and his money he was counting

    I saw a horse outside the door where my old horse should be
    Well, I called me wife and I said to her: Will you kindly tell to me

    While in the merry month of May, from me home I started
    Left the girls of Tuam nearly broken hearted
    Saluted father dear, kissed me darling mother
    Drank a pint of beer, me grief and tears to smother
    Then off to reap the corn, leave where I was born

    I've been a wild rover for many's the year

    and I never will play the wild rover no more
