Elisa:

Gm F Gm They call me The Wild Rose
Bb D7But my name was Elisa Day
Gm F GmWhy they call me it I do not know
Gm F GmFor my name was Elisa Day
--------------------- He:
Gm BbFrom the first day I saw her I knew she was the one
Cm D7As she stared in my eyes and smiled
Gm BbFor her lips was the color of the roses
Cm DThey grew down the river, all bloody and wild
--------------------- Elisa:
Gm BbWhen he knocked on my door and entered the room
Cm D7My trembling subsided in his sure embrace
Gm BbHe would be my first man, and with a careful hand
Cm DHe wiped up the tears that ran down my face
--------------------- Both: D
Gm F Gm They call me The Wild Rose
Bb DBut my name was Elisa Day
Gm F GmWhy they call me it I do not know
Gm F GmFor my name was Elisa Day
--------------------- He:
Gm BbOn the second day I brought her a flower
Cm D7She was more beautiful than any woman I'd seen
Gm BbI said, "Do you know where the wild roses grow
Cm DSo sweet and scarlet and free?"
--------------------- Elisa:
Gm BbOn the second day he came with a single red rose
Cm D7He said: "give me your loss and your sorrow?"
Gm BbI nodded my head, as I lay on the bed
Cm DHe said, "If I show you the roses will you follow?"
--------------------- Both:
Gm F Gm They call me The Wild Rose
Bb DBut my name was Elisa Day
Gm F GmWhy they call me it I do not know
Gm F GmFor my name was Elisa Day
-------------------- Elisa:
Gm BbOn the third day he took me to the river
Cm D7He showed me the roses and we kissed
Gm BbAnd the last thing I heard was a muttered word
Cm DAs he knelt above me with a rock in his fist
-------------------- He:
Gm BbOn the last day I took her where the wild roses grow
Cm D7And she lay on the bank, the wind light as a thief
Gm BbAnd I kissed her goodbye, I said, "All beauty must die"
Cm DAnd I lent down and planted a rose between her teeth
-------------------- Elisa:
Gm F Gm They call me The Wild Rose
Bb DBut my name was Elisa Day
Gm F Gm Why they call me it I do not know
Gm F GmFor my name was Elisa Day
Gm F GmFor my name was Elisa Day
Gm F GmFor my name was Elisa Day
