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 


[Outro 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
