Red Is The Rose lyrics

Red is the rose that in yonder garden grows
Fair is the lily of the valley
Clear is the water that flows from the Boyne
But my love is fairer than any

Come over the hills my bonny Irish lass
come over the hills to your darling
You choose the rose love and I'll make the vow
And I'll be your true love forever


'Twas down by Killarney's green woods that we strayed
When the moon and the stars, they were shining
The moon shone its rays on her locks of golden hair
And she swore she'd be my love forever


It's not for the parting that my sister grieves
It's not for the loss of my mother
It's all for the loss of my bonny Irish lass
That my heart is breaking forever

Chorus X2
