   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#

    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
