Down by the Greenwood Side

There was a fair maiden lived in the north

Oh, the rose and the linsey, oh

She fell in love with her father's clerk

Down by the Greenwood side, oh



He courted her a year and a day

Oh, the rose and the linsey, oh

Till her, the young man did betray

Down by the Greenwood side, oh



She leaned her back against the thorn

Oh, the rose and the linsey, oh

And there, two bonny boys, she's born

Down by the Greenwood side, oh



She's taken out her little knife

Oh, the rose and the linsey, oh

And she's robbed them of their life

Down by the Greenwood side, oh



There, she walked by her father's wall

Oh, the rose and the linsey, oh

She saw her two bonny boys playing ball

Down by the Greenwood side, oh



Oh, bonny boys, if you were mine,

Oh, the rose and the linsey, oh

I'd dress you up in silk so fine

Down by the Greenwood side, oh



Oh, mother dear, when we were dying,

Oh, the rose and the linsey, oh

You did not treat us then so fine

Down by the Greenwood side, oh



Now, bonny boys, come tell to me

Oh, the rose and the linsey, oh

What sort of life I'll have after dying?

Down by the Greenwood side, oh



Seven years of visions of blood

Oh, the rose and the linsey, oh

And seven years of hurt in the womb

Down by the Greenwood side, oh



Seven years down in the mourning bell

Oh, the rose and the linsey, oh

And seven years in the flames of hell

Down by the Greenwood side, oh



Welcome, welcome, visions of blood

Oh, the rose and the linsey, oh

And welcome, welcome, hurt in the womb

Down by the Greenwood side, oh



Welcome down to the mourning bell

Oh, the rose and the linsey, oh

But, God, save me from the flames of hell

Down by the Greenwood side, oh

Down by the Greenwood side
