DOWN IN THE WILLOW GARDEN (Charlie Monroe) The Everly Brothers Down in the willow garden where me and my love did meet, As we set there a courting, My love fell off to sleep. I had a bottle of burgundy wine, My love she did not know. So I poisoned that dear little girl on the banks below. I drew a sabre through her, It was a bloody knife, I threw her in the river, Which was a dreadful sight. My father oft had told me that money would set me free If I would murder that dear little girl whose name was Rose Connelly. My father sits at his cabin door, wiping his tear-dimmed eyes, For his only son soon shall walk to yonder scaffold high. My race is run beneath the sun, The scaffold now waits for me, For I did murder that dear little girl whose name was Rose Connelly.
