Down in the Willow Garden - (C. Monroe)
Intro: Repeat 4 G Em
Down [G]in the [D]willow [G]gar[Em]den,
Where [G]me and my love did [Em]meet.
[G]As we [D]set there a' [G]court[Em]in',
My [G]love fell [D]off to [G]sleep.
I [Em]had a bottle of [G]burgundy [Em]wine,
My [G]love she did not [Em]know.
[G]And so I [D]poisoned that [G]dear little [Em]girl,
[G]On the [D]banks be[G]low.
I drew a [D]sabre [G]through [Em]her,
It [G]was a bloody [Em]knife.
I [G]threw her [D]in the [G]riv[Em]er,
Which [G]was a [D]dreadful [G]sight.
My [Em]father often [G]had told [Em]me,
That [G]money would set me [Em]free.
If [G]I would [D]murder that [G]dear little [Em]girl,
Whose [G]name was [D]Rose Connel[G]ly.
My father [D]sits at his [G]cabin [Em]door,
[G]Wiping his tear-dimmed [Em]eyes.
For his [G]only [D]son [G]soon shall [Em]walk,
To [G]yonder [D]scaffold [G]high.
My [Em]race is run be[G]neath the [Em]sun,
The [G]scaffold now waits for [Em]me.
For [G]I did [D]murder that [G]dear little [Em]girl,
Whose [G]name was [D]Rose Connel[Em]ly.
