RED IS THE ROSE

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


CHORUS
D          Bm           Em            G A
Red is the rose that in yonder garden grows
D           Bm          G  A
Fair is the lily of the valley
G            F#m        G              Bm A
Clear is the water that flows from the Boyne
    D          Bm          Em A D
But my love is fairer than any


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

Chorus:

D                Bm           Em        G A
It's not for the parting that my sister pains
     D           Bm          G A
It's not for the grief of my mother
     G           F#m        G            Bm A
'Tis all for the loss of my bonnie Irish lass
     D           Bm          Em A D
That my heart is breaking forever
