                Em                G
Hear my voice and listen well
A           C      D
And a story I will tell
    Em             G
How duty brought a broken heart
    A             C           D     Em
And why a love so strong must fall apart
 
 
                    G
She was lovely, she was fine
A             C     D
Daughter of a royal line
Em            G
He, no equal, but for them
   A               C        D       Em
It mattered little for they were in love
 
 
CHORUS:
C                G
Rose of England, sweet and fair
D                Em
Shining with the sun
C                G
Rose of England, have a care
    Am                  B                    Em
For where the thorn is, there the blood will run
Am    Em     Am D  Em
Oh my heart, oh my heart
 
 
                   G
Through the summer days and nights
A             C     D
Stolen kisses and delights
      Em                      G
Would thrill their hearts and fill their dreams
     A            C         D        Em
With all emotions that true love can bring


                      G
But black of mourning came one day
A               C       D
When her sister passed away
    Em            G
And many said, on bended knee
 A                 C        D      Em
"She has gone, and you must be our Queen"
 
 
CHORUS:
C                G
Rose of England, sweet and fair
D                Em
Shining with the sun
C                G
Rose of England, have a care
    Am                  B                    Em
For where the thorn is, there the blood will run
Am    Em     Am D  Em
Oh my heart, oh my heart
 
 
             G
To the abbey she did ride
A              C      D
With her lover by her side
Em                  G
When they heard the church bells ring
A                 C        D       Em
She was Queen and one day, he'd be King
 
 
                   G
But men of malice, men of hate
   A              C        D
Protesting to her chambers came
   Em                  G
"A foreign prince will have your hand,
    A                     C      D      Em
For he'll bring peace and riches to our land"
 
 
BRIDGE:
           A                            Em
She said, "Do you tell me that I cannot wed the one I love?
A                            B7                Em
Do you tell me that I am not mistress of my heart?"
Am      Em    Am  D   Em
Aah Aah Aah,  Aah Aah Aah 
 
 
                  G
And so with heavy weight of life
    A                C        D
She kissed her lover one last time
      Em              G
"This land I wed, and no man comes
    A           C         D         Em
For if I cannot have you, I'll have none"
 
 
CHORUS:
C                G
Rose of England, sweet and fair
D                Em
Shining with the sun
C                G
Rose of England, have a care
    Am                  B                    Em
For where the thorn is, there the blood will run
Am    Em     Am D  Em
Oh my heart, oh my heart
 
 
OUTRO:

C   G   Am  B   Em
Am    Em   Am D  Em
Oh oh oh,  Oh oh oh
