The Briar and the Rose  Tom Waits

I [G]FELL A[D7]SLEEP DOWN [D]BY A [G]STREAM
AND THERE I [C]HAD THE [D7]STRANGEST [G]DREAM
AND [C]DOWN BY [Bm]BRENNAN'S [B]GLEN THERE [C]GROWS
A [G]BRIAR [D7]AND A [G]ROSE
THERE'S A [C]TREE IN THE [D7]FOREST
AND I [C]DON'T KNOW [G]WHERE
[C]I BUILT A [G]NEST OUT OF YOUR [D7]HAIR
AND [G]CLIMBING [D7]UP IN[G]TO THE [C]AIR
THE [G]BRIAR [D7]AND THE [G]ROSE
WELL [G]I DON'T [D7]KNOW HOW [D]LONG IT'S [G]BEEN
BUT I WAS [C]BORN IN [D7]BRENNON'S [G]GLEN
AND [C]NEAR THE [Bm]END OF [B]SPRING THERE [C]GROWS
A [G]BRIAR [D7]AND A [G]ROSE
I [C]PICKED THE [D7]ROSE ONE [C]EARLY [G]MORN
I [C]PRICKED MY [G]FINGER ON A [D7]THORN
THEY'VE [G]GROWN SO [D7]CLOSE IT'S [G]WINDING [C]WOVE
THE [G]BRIAR '[D7]ROUND THE [G]ROSE
I [G]TRIED TO [D7]TEAR THEM [D]BOTH A[G]PART
I FELT A [C]BULLET [D7]IN MY [G]HEART
AND [C]ALL DRESSED [Bm]UP IN [B]SPRINGS NEW [C]CLOTHES
THE [G]BRIAR [D7]AND THE [G]ROSE
AND [C]WHEN I'M [G]BURRIED AND [C]IN MY [G]GRAVE
[C]TELL ME SO [G]I MAY [D7]KNOW
YOUR [G]TEARS MAY [D7]FALL TO [G]MAKE LOVE [C]GROW
THE [G]BRIAR [D7]AND THE [G]ROSE
