Fiddler's Green — Haunted lyrics

Well I lost my home and fortune
People think I'm round the bend
Now I'm a dirty beggar
Wailing in Van Diemen's Land
And all the money that some passing people give to me
I spend in 1000 bars and get as drunk as I can

Well, I'm haunted by a ghost
I've got to run away from me
But this ghost's inside of me
So tell me when will I be free?
Well, I'm haunted by a ghost
I've got to run away from me
But this ghost's inside of me
So tell me when will I be free?
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/fiddlers-green-haunted-lyrics.html ]
I've been searching high and low
Just for a little piece of gold
But you can't hurry love, my friend
That's what I have been told
I have to rove and ramble and to roam the streets at
Night
Cause I can't bear to stay at home
The yearning's deep inside

One night I was completely drunk
And staggered through the town
My head fell on the pavement
As the streets moved up and down
When I regained my consciousness
I looked into your eyes
Oh please don't go
I'm beggin' you
I'll always treat you nice

Well I lost my home and fortune
People think I'm round the bend
Now I'm a dirty beggar
Wailing in Van Diemen's Land
And all the money that some passing people give to me
I spend in 1000 bars and get as drunk as I can

I'm haunted by a ghost
I've got to run away from me
But this ghost's inside of me
So tell me when will I be free?
Never - never - never - never

I've been rovin
All my life
