Gm C5 Gm
He called me the wild ro-ose
A# D
But my name was Elisa Day
Gm C5 Gm
Why he called me that I do not kno-ow
Gm F5 Gm
For my name was Elisa Day

Gm A#
From the first day I saw her I knew she was the one
Cm D
She stared in my eyes and smiled
Gm A#
Her lips were the colour of the roses
Cm D
That grow down the river all bloody and wild
Gm A#
When he knocked on my door and entered the room
Cm D
My trembling subsided in his sure embrace
Gm A#
He would be my first man and with a careful hand
Cm D D7
He wiped off the tears that run down my face
On the second day I brought her a flower
She was more beautiful than any woman I'd seen
I said "Do you know where the wild roses grow
So sweet and scarlet and free?"
On the second day he came with a single red rose
He said "Give me your lust and your sorrow"
I nodded my head as I lay on the bed
"If I show you the roses, will you follow?"
On the third day he took me to the river
He showed me the roses and we kissed
And the last thing I heard was a martyr word
As he knelt above me with a rock in his fist
On the last day I took her where the wild roses grow
She lay on the bank going light as a thief (?)
And I kissed her goodbye, said all beauty must die
And I leant down and planted a rose between her teeth
