A Rose In The Garden


Oh! come, sit down close to me, my dear,
While I sing you a merry song!
'Tis now for us well over a year
Since together you and I have been,
Since together you and I have been, my dear,
Since together you and I have been,
'Tis now for us well over a year
Since together you and I have been.

I will not sit close to you, my dear,
Now nor at any other time.
You've given your love to another one,
And your heart is no longer mine.
Your heart no longer is mine, my dear,
Your heart no longer is mine.
You've given your love to another one,
And your heart no longer is mine.

When your heart truly was mine, my dear,
You laid your head upon my breast,
And I listened to the strange oaths you swore
That the sun, it rose in the west,
That the sun, it rose in the west, my dear,
That the sun, it rose in the west,
And I listened to the strange oaths you swore
That the sun, it rose in the west.

There's a rose in the garden for you, my dear,
A rose in the garden for you.
When fish fly high like the birds in the sky,
Young men will then prove true,
Young men will then prove true, my dear,
Young men will then prove true,
When fish fly high like the birds in the sky,
Young men will then prove true.

As sung by Linda Kearns from the Gatineau, Quebec.
