Barbara Allen
9 Sweet William was buried in the old church tomb, Barbara Ellen was buried in the yard. Out of sweet William's grave grew a green, red rose, Out of Barbara Ellen's a briar.
10 They grew and grew to the old church top And still they couldn't grow any higher, And at the end tied a true love-knot, The rose wrapped around the briar.
