lyrics

Down in the willow garden, me and my love did meet
And as we sat a-courting, my love fell off to sleep
I had a bottle of burgundy wine; my love, she did not know
And its there I poisoned that dear little girl along the banks below


I drew my saber through her; it was a bloody knife
I threw her in the river, which was a dreadful sight
My father often told me that money would set me free
And so I murdered that dear little girl whose name was Rose Connelly

Now he stands alone at his cabin door wiping his tear-dimmed eyes
thinking on His only son upon the glows high
My race is run beneath the sun; the devil is waiting
For I did murder that dear little girl whose name was Rose Connelly
My race is run beneath the sun; the devil is waiting
For I did murder that dear little girl whose name was Rose Connelly
