That stands at my bed feet"

I'm afraid they're of no good

I dreamed that my chamber was full of wild swine

And my bride's bed floating in blood"

If Lady Margaret I mayn't go and see"

And tingled all on the ring
    A chord diagramD MajorD          A chord diagramB minorBm           A chord diagramG+G
And who was so ready as her own born brother

To rise and let him in

Amongst the ladies all "

Nor neither is she in her hall

Lies pale against yon wall"

Although they're very fine
    A chord diagramD MajorD      A chord diagramB minorBm        A chord diagramG+G
And let me kiss them cold pale lips
        A chord diagramD MajorD                       A chord diagramG+G
Just as often as they've kissed mine"

And then he's kissed her chin

There was no breath within

Three times he's kissed her chin

And the last time he kissed them cold pale lips

And out of her grave sprung a red, red rose
       A chord diagramD MajorD                  A chord diagramG+G
Out of his a green, green briar


Verse:
    A chord diagramD MajorD
And they both growed up the old church wall
                             A chord diagramG+G
Till they could not grow any higher
         A chord diagramD MajorD            A chord diagramB minorBm        A chord diagramG+G
And they met and they tied in a true love's knot

Red rose around green briar
