Down In The Willow Garden
(C. Monroe) Capo: First Fret Album: Angel Clare (1975) G Em Down in the willow garden G Em Where me and my love did meet, G Em As we set there a courtin', G D G My love fell off to sleep. Em G/f# G I had a bottle of burgundy wine, G Em My love she did not know. G Em So I poisoned that dear little girl G D G On the banks below. G Em I drew a saber through her, G Em It was a bloody knife, G Em I threw her in the river, G D G Which was a dreadful sight. Em G/f# G My father often had told me G Em That money would set me free G Em If I would murder that dear little girl G D G Whose name was Rose Connelly. G Em My father sits at his cabin door, G Em Wiping his tear dimmed eyes, G Em For his only son soon shall walk G D G To yonder scaffold high. Em G/f# G My race is run beneath the sun, G Em The scaffold now waits for me, G Em For I did murder that dear little girl G D Em Whose name was Rose Connelly.
