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