Alterations by Anders Hoel

--------------------
Elisa:

          Gm                        F Gm 
They call me The Wild Rose
              Bb                       D7
But my name was Elisa Day
                 Gm                           F Gm
Why they call me it I do not know
              Gm             F      Gm
For my name was Elisa Day 
---------------------
He:

                 Gm                                        Bb
From the first day I saw her I knew she was the one
              Cm                                 D7
As she stared in my eyes and smiled
               Gm                                     Bb
For her lips was the color of the roses
          Cm                                     D
They grew down the river, all bloody and wild 
---------------------
Elisa:

                 Gm                                       Bb
When he knocked on my door and entered the room
      Cm                                   D7
My trembling subsided in his sure embrace
                Gm                                  Bb
He would be my first man, and with a careful hand
      Cm                                     D
He wiped up the tears that ran down my face 
---------------------
Both:

D
         Gm                        F Gm 
They call me The Wild Rose
              Bb                       D
But my name was Elisa Day
                 Gm                          F Gm
Why they call me it I do not know
              Gm             F       Gm
For my name was Elisa Day 
---------------------
He:

              Gm                                          Bb
On the second day I brought her a flower
                          Cm                           D7
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?" 
---------------------
Elisa:

              Gm                                          Bb
On the second day he came with a single red rose
                 Cm                                           D7
He said: "give me your loss and your sorrow?"
   Gm                                 Bb
I nodded my head, as I lay on the bed
                       Cm                                             D
He said, "If I show you the roses will you follow?" 
---------------------
Both:

          Gm                        F Gm 
They call me The Wild Rose
              Bb                        D
But my name was Elisa Day
                 Gm                          F Gm
Why they call me it I do not know
              Gm             F     Gm
For my name was Elisa Day 
--------------------
Elisa:

             Gm                                            Bb
On the third day he took me to the river
      Cm                                               D7
He showed me the roses and we kissed
               Gm                                     Bb
And the last thing I heard was a muttered word
      Cm                                        D
As he knelt above me with a rock in his fist 
--------------------
He:

             Gm                                              Bb
On the last day I took her where the wild roses grow
               Cm                                         D7
And 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
And I lent down and planted a rose between her teeth 
--------------------
Elisa:

         Gm                        F   Gm 
They call me The Wild Rose
              Bb                       D
But my name was Elisa Day
                 Gm                           F Gm 
Why they call me it I do not know
              Gm              F     Gm
For my name was Elisa Day
              Gm              F     Gm
For my name was Elisa Day
              Gm              F     Gm
For my name was Elisa Day
