Chorus: ~~~~~~~ Gm Cm Gm They call me the wild ro-se Bb D7 but my name was Elisa Day. Gm Cm Gm Why they call me it I do not kno-ow F Gm for my name was Elisa Day. Verse 1: ~~~~~~~~ Gm Bb >From the first day I saw her I knew she was the one Cm D as she stared in my eyes and smiled. Gm Bb Her lips were the color of roses Cm D that grew down the river, all bloody and wild. Verse 2: ~~~~~~~~ Gm Bb He knocked on my door and entered my room Cm D my trembling subsided in his sure embrace. Gm Bb He would be my first man, and with a carefull hand Cm D he wiped at the tears that ran down my face. ______ |chorus| ------ Verse 3: ~~~~~~~~ Gm Bb On the second day I brought her a flower Cm D she was more beautiful than any woman I'd seen. Gm Bb I said: Do you know where the wild roses grow Cm D so sweet and scarlet and free? Verse 4: ~~~~~~~~ Gm Bb On the second day he came with a single red rose Cm D said: Will you give me your loss and your sorrow? Gm Bb I nodded my head as I lay on the bed Cm D If I show you the roses will you follow? ______ |chorus| ------ Verse 5: ~~~~~~~~ Gm Bb On the third day he took me to the river Cm D he showed me the roses and we kissed. Gm Bb And the last thing I heared was a muttered word Cm D as he stood smiling above me with a rock in his fist. Verse 6: ~~~~~~~~ Gm Bb On the last day I took her where the wild roses grow Cm D she lay on the bank, the wind light as a thief Gm Bb And I kissed her goodbye, I said: All beauty must die Cm D leant down and planted a little rose between her teeth. ______ |chorus| ------
