And when I haver,

Well I know I'm gonna be, I'm gonna be the man who's haverin' to you.

And I would walk five hundred miles...

The OED says that the verb 'haver' is chiefly Scottish and from some northern dialects, and means "To talk garrulously and foolishly; to talk nonsense."

A second meaning, apparently in "general English use", is "to hesitate, to be slow in deciding."
