    C                 Am 
In Scarlet town where I was born
             D7       G
There was a fair maid dwelling
     F                C
And every youth cried well away
                  Dm7 G7  C     F       C  G
For her name was Barbara Allen


2.Twas in the merry month of May
The green buds were a swelling
Sweet William on his deathbed lay
For the love of Barbara Allen


3.He sent a servant unto her
To the place she was dwelling
Saying you must come to his deathbed now
If your name be Barbara Allen


4.Slowly slowly she got up
Slowly slowly she came nigh him
And the only words to him she said
Young man I think you're dying


5.As she was walking oer the fields
She heard the death bell knelling
And every stroke it seemed to say
Hardhearted Barbara Allen


6.Oh mother mother make my bed
Make it long and make it narrow
Sweet William died for me today
I'll die for him tomorrow


7.They buried her in the old churchyard
They buried him in the choir
And from his grave grew a red red rose
From her grave a green briar


8.They grew and grew to the steeple top
Till they could grow no higher
And there they twined in a true love's knot
Red rose around green briar
