SWEET WAS MY ROSE New Velvet Glove - 1974 Sweet was my Rose In the light of the rising sun Never forget her Keep alive for everyone Sweet was my Rose In the light of the rising sun Never forget her Keep alive for everyone On the day that I recall Was a bright and sunny dawn And we hadn't seen a yankee Since a week before the summer storm So Momma said to sister Rose "I guess it's safe to take a horse, Get out and try to find your Dad and Uncle Ben" Though I ????? not to send her, she felt, "Your sister's goin', you're too young" She rode out, never saw my sister Rose again Sweet was my Rose In the light of the rising sun Never forget her Keep alive for everyone Some people tell that fateful morn' She rode to Shannon creek Making 'quiries at the bar of Uncle Ben From there she rode to Shadow Valley From afar she saw Pa Uncle Ben was less alive than dead There was Pa with his arms a'waving to Rose But too late the crossfire caught her Rose was shoutin' "Get out and save your own skin" If you go to Shadow Valley Upon a hillside there's a headstone Carved upon it is this inscription Oh oh Sweet was my Rose In the light of the rising sun Never forget her Keep alive for everyone Sweet was my Rose In the light of the rising sun Never forget her Keep alive for everyone Sweet was my Rose In the light of the rising sun Never forget her Keep alive for everyone (Transcribed by Monique Adriaansen & Mel Priddle - December 2003)
