Red Is The Rose

              Bm        Em           G
Come over the hills, my bonnie Irish lass
     D        Bm            G   A
Come over the hills to your darling
    G          F#m            G             Bm
You choose the rose love, and I'll make the vow
    D            Bm           Em A D
And I'll be your true love forever

Red is the rose that in yonder garden grows
Fair is the lily of the valley
Clear is the water that flows from the Boyne
But my love is fairer than any

'Twas down by Killarney's green woods we strayed
The moon and the stars they were shining
The moon shone its rays on her locks of golden hair
She swore she'd be my love forever


It's not for the parting that my sister pains
It's not for the grief of my mother
'Tis all for the loss of my bonnie Irish lass
That my heart is breaking forever
