Written by Charlie Monroe



Chords


Song

1.

Down in the willow garden,
Where me and my true love did stray,
'twas while we were sitting a’courting,
My love to me did say….

chorus 1:

Willie my darlin' oh Willie my dear,
Oh please don’t take my life,
Oh please don’t stab my fair young breast,
With your long and daggery knife.

2.

I had a bottle of the Burgundy wine,
My true love did not know,
And so I poisoned that dear little girl,
Down under the bank below.

chorus 2:

I stabbed her with a dagger,
It was a bloody knife,
And I threw her in the river,
Which was a dreadful sight.

chorus 3:

My father rich he had told me,
That money would set me free,
If I would murder that dear little girl,
Whose name was Rose Connelly.

solo:

3.

My father sits in his cabin door,
Wiping a tear dimmed eye,
Cursing the day he ever did say,
For that dear, young woman to die.

chorus 4:

My race is run beneath the sun,
Oh hell is waiting for me,
For I did murder that dear little girl,
Whose name was Rose Connelly.

repeat
