Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave - Where the Wild Roses Grow Hey! I just liked this song and had to write down the chords. So here it is, enjoy! Chorus: Elisa: Gm Cm Gm They call me The Wild Rose A# D But my name was Elisa Day Gm Cm Gm Why they call me it I do not know F Gm For my name was Elisa Day verse: He: Gm A# From the first day I saw her I knew she was the one Cm D As she stared in my eyes and smiled Gm A# For her lips were the color of the roses Cm D They grew down the river, all bloody and wild verse: Elisa: When he knocked on my door and entered the room My trembling subsided in his sure embrace He would be my first man, and with a careful hand He wiped the tears that ran down my face verse: He: On the second day I brought her a flower She was more beautiful than any woman I'd seen I said, "Do you know where the wild roses grow So sweet and scarlet and free?" verse: Elisa: On the second day he came with a single rose Said: "Will you give me your loss and your sorrow?" I nodded my head, as I lay on the bed He said, "If I show you the roses will you follow?" verse: Elisa: On the third day he took me to the river He showed me the roses and we kissed And the last thing I heard was a muttered word As he stood smiling above me with a rock in his fist verse: He: On the last day I took her where the wild roses grow And she lay on the bank, the wind light as a thief As I kissed her goodbye, I said, "All beauty must die" And I lent down and planted a rose between her teeth ending chorus: Elisa: They call me The Wild Rose But my name was Elisa Day Why they call me it I do not know For my name was Elisa Day Gm F Gm For my name was Elisa Day Gm F Gm For my name was Elisa Day Tabbed by Jimmy Engtröm firstname.lastname@example.org
