exactly like the song.

Dm Bb Dm

Down the crooked road a ways
  Bb                             Dm
A child's shadow hiding in the Briar

F        Dm    F      Dm
Tending to a twisted heart
  Bb              Gm
that's bent and broken
  Bb          Gm
wounded and abandoned
 A7                      Dm
left amongst the rotted root to rot

Dm Bb Dm

Moon, crimson moon
 Bb                                    Dm
Rose Marie's walking down the crooked road a ways

F      Dm F                Dm
All aglow, her fair white skin
 Bb           Gm   Bb         Gm
Portrait of beauty, angel to many
 F         Dm F                  Dm
Hears the hush crying from the briar
 Bb             Gm Bb                  Gm
Reaches in her hand to see what's the matter
         C                  Gm
and is dragged through the darkness
   C                Gm
beneath the lonely cypress
     Bb             Gm
The town's beloved daughter
 Bb                                 Gm
carried to her death in the turbid waters
     A7               Dm
and set afloat downstream

Dm Bb Dm

F            Dm  F               Dm
Whole town erupts, bursts into flame
 Bb           Gm                  Bb            Gm
Parties go a-searching down the crooked road a ways
 F        Dm           F          Dm
Find old Rufus there drunk and asleep
 Bb             Gm              Bb                 Gm
Fishing by the water must have killed our beloved daughter
 F                Dm F         Dm
Can't hold back these waves of anger
       Bb              Gm
Tie a rope around his neck
Bb               Gm
See if he still hollers
  A7                                  Dm
Another innocent soul hangs over the briar
