[Intro]
 
Em
 
G           C      G  Em
Down in the willow garden,
      G                  Em
where me and my love did meet
G     C     G   Em
As we sat a-courtin',
   G         D      G
my love fell off to sleep
 
  Em    D         G        Em
I had a bottle of burgundy wine,
   G                Em
my love she did not know
G    C             G           Em
So I poisoned that dear little girl,
G         D       G
along the banks below
 
  G      C     G       Em
I drew a sabre through her,
   G            Em
it was a bloody knife
  G         C      G Em
I threw her in the river,
      G     D        G
which was a dreadful sight
 
   Em     D     G    Em
My father often told me,
     G                  Em
that money would set me free
   G       C           G           Em
If I would murder that dear little girl,
      G        D          G
whose name was Rose Connolly
 
   Em     D           G     Em
My father sits at his cabin door,
G                      Em
wiping his tear-dimmed eyes
        G    C   G          Em
For his only son soon shall walk,
   G      D        G
to yonder scaffold high
 
   Em      D       G        Em
My race is run, beneath the sun,
    G                      Em
the scaffold now waits for me
    G     C           G           Em
For I did murder that dear little girl,
      G        D          Em
whose name was Rose Connelly
