I know the pools where the grayling rise, I know the trees where the filberts fall, I know the woods where the red fox lies, The twisted elms where the brown owls call. And I’ve seldom a shilling to call my own, And there’s never a girl I’d marry, I thank the Lord I’m a rolling stone With never a care to carry. I talk to the stars as they come and go On every night from July to June, I’m free of the speech of the winds that blow, And I know what weather will sing what tune. I sow no seed and I pay no rent, And I thank no man for his bounties, But I’ve a treasure that’s never spent, I’m lord of a dozen counties.
