Little Rosewood Casket-crd  Marty Robbins


Subject: THE LITTLE ROSEWOOD CASKET Little Rosewood Casket Recorded by Marty Robbins Traditional
CAPO: 1st FRET KEY: Eb PLAY: D [D] There's a little [A7] Rosewood [D] casket Settin' on a [A7] marble [D] stand There's a package [G] of love [D] letters Written [A7] by my true love's [D] hand
Go and bring them to me, brother Come and set upon my bed Lay your head upon my pillow While my aching heart grows dead.
Read them gently to me, brother Read them til I fall asleep Fall asleep to wake in heaven Oh, Dear brother, do not weep.
Last Sunday I saw her walking With a gentleman by her side And I thought I heard him tell her She was soon to be his bride.
When I'm dead and in my coffin And my friends have gathered 'round And my narrow grave is ready In some lonesome churchyard ground.
There's a little Rosewood casket Settin' on a marble stand There's a package of love letters Written by my true love's hand.

The Little Rosewood Casket, often considered a folk song, was written by White and Goullaud in 1870. By the time of the earliest country recordings in the 1920's (Ernest Thompson on Columbia 216-D as the Little Rosebud Casket) it's authorship had been forgotten, the song having moved into the folk tradition.
