Red is the Rose
Nanci Griffith & the Chieftains
"An Irish Evening"

[Verse 1]
D              Bm        Em           G
Come over the hills, my bonnie Irish lass
     D        Bm            G    A
Come over the hills to your darling
G              D              G             Em
You choose the rose love, and I’ll make the vow
    D             G   D      G  D
And I’ll be your true love forever

[Refrain]
D           Bm          Em            G
Red is the rose that in yonder garden grows
    D           Bm          G   A
And fair is the lily of the valley
G             D         G              Em
Clear is the water that flows from the Boyne
    D          G           A7 D
But my love is fairer than any.

[Verse 2]
D             Bm                Em                G
‘Twas down by Killarney’s green woods that we strayed
         D            Bm               G    A
When the moon and the stars they were shining
    G               D           G             Em
The moon shone its rays on her locks of golden hair
    D                  G   D    G  D
And she swore she’d be my love forever

[Refrain]
D           Bm          Em            G
Red is the rose that in yonder garden grows
    D           Bm          G   A
And fair is the lily of the valley
G             D         G              Em
Clear is the water that flows from the Boyne
    D          G           A7 D
But my love is fairer than any.

[Verse 3]
D                Bm            Em     G
It’s not for the parting of my sister Kate
      D           Bm        G   A
It’s not for the loss of my mother
     G           D           G            Em
It’s all for the loss of my bonnie Irish lass
        D           G        A7  D
That is leaving old Ireland forever.

[Refrain]
D           Bm          Em            G
Red is the rose that in yonder garden grows
    D           Bm          G   A
And fair is the lily of the valley
G             D         G              Em
Clear is the water that flows from the Boyne
    D          G           A7 D
But my love is fairer than any.

[Verse 4]
D                Bm            Em       G
It’s not for the parting that my sister pains
      D           Bm         G   A
It’s not for the grief of my mother
     G           D           G            Em
‘Tis all for the loss of my bonnie Irish lass
    D          G           A7 D
That my heart is breaking forever

[Refrain]
D           Bm          Em            G
Red is the rose that in yonder garden grows
    D           Bm          G   A
And fair is the lily of the valley
G             D         G              Em
Clear is the water that flows from the Boyne
    D          G           A7 D
But my love is fairer than any.
