A5 (x022xx)  D  G  C

Hammer-on the C chords.
In the chorus the run leading up to the C chord goes (E3 A0 A2).

      A5            D             G    C    G
As he laid Spanish roses in her hair
         A5            D                  G     C    G
And then covered the crown of thorns she wears
          C             A5           D
And the blood from her lips as she sings
       C            A5       D
Do it all for the glory of thee

                      C           G
And they carried her down, down, down
             C            G
Down in the cold, cold, ground
                  C       G
By the river she used to pray
             C        G            D  C     G    C   G
Forever now she will wait for the king to come

         A5             D                  G   C   G
And the boys who would crave her perfect skin
      A5                  D                      G    C    G
She burned herself, she thought it would please him
          C          A5                D
And the iron chain spiked around her waist
          C          A5               D
And the poison she used to hide her face

refrain:
And they carried her down, down, down
Down in the cold, cold, ground
By the river she used to pray
Forever now she will wait for the king to come

And she made a bed of broken glass and stone
Where she slept at night to prove her faith was strong
And when her broken body finally gave
There grew Spanish roses by her grave

And they carried her down, down, down
Down in the cold, cold, ground
By the river she used to pray
Forever now she will wait for the king to come
