[Intro]
G A D G A D
 
 
[Verse 1]
          D        D7       G
There's a bower of roses by Bendemeer's stream
        A                          D
And the nightingale sings round it all the day long
       D          D7               G
In the time of my childhood it was like a sweet dream
   A                    D
To sit in the roses and hear the bird's song
 
 
[Chorus]
     A                        D
That bower and its music I'll never forget
              D7          E            A
But oft when alone in the bloom of the year
  D            D7          G
I think is the nightingale singing there yet
        A                         A7        D
Are the roses still bright by the calm Bendemeer
 
 
[Instrumental]
G A D G A D
 
 
[Verse 2]
       D          D7            G
No the roses soon wither'd that hung o'er the wave
         A                            D
But some blossoms were gather'd while freshly they shone
        D          D7                G
And the dew was distill'd from their flowers they gave
        A                        D
All the fragrance of summer when summer was gone
 
 
[Chorus]
     A                   D
Thus memory draws from delight ere it dies
                D7             E      A
An essence that breathes of it many a year
     D            D7             G
Thus bright to my soul as it was then to my eyes
        A                         A7        D
Is that bower on the banks of the calm Bendemeer
 
 
[Outro]
N.C.                                        D
Are the roses still bright by the calm Bendemeer
