Down in the Willow Garden
The Everly Brothers Lyrics


Down in the Willow garden
Where me and my love did meet
As we sat a-courtin'
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 saber through her
It was a bloody knife
I threw her in the river
Which was a dreadful sign
My father often told me
That money would set me free
If I would murder that dear little girl
Whose name was Rose Connolly

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 Connolly

So I poisoned that dear little girl
On the banks below
I drew a saber through her
It was a bloody knife

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

@E.A. de Ruiter Down in the Willow garden
Where me and my love did meet
As we sat a-courtin'
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 sign

That money would set me free
If I would murder that dear little girl

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

Canal Mystery

Lá no jardim de salgueiros
Onde eu e meu amor nos encontramos
Enquanto nós estávamos namorando
Meu amor adormeceu
Eu tinha uma garrafa de vinho da Borgonha
Meu amor não sabia
Então eu envenenei aquela amada menininha
Nas margens mais adiante

Eu introduzi um sabre através dela
Era uma faca sangrenta
Eu a joguei no rio
O que era um gesto horrível
Meu pai frequentemente me dizia
Que o dinheiro me libertaria
Se eu matasse aquela amada menininha
Que se chamava Rose Connolly

Meu pai está sentato na porta de sua cabana
Enxugando seus olhos escurecidos pelas lágrimas que derrama
Pelo seu único filho que logo caminhará
Lá para o alto do seu cadafalso
Minha coragem fugiu, sob o Sol
O cadafalso espera por mim
Por ter matado aquela amada menininha
Que se chamava Rose Connelly



Lanh Thong

Down in the willow garden
Where me and my love did meet,
As we set there a courtin',
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 saber through her,
It was a bloody knife,
I threw her in the river,
Which was a dreadful sight.
My father often 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

I just love murder ballads. They are just so uplifting.

@tackless Hey tackless, if you wanna hear another Murder ballad, you should totally listen to The Red Clay Ramblers' "Run Sister Run" from "A Lie Of The Mind" (1985) Soundtrack Album!

The ACTUAL lyrics are the devil now waits for me. Not scaffold, Margaret wouldn't let Ike teach them a song with the word devil in it, so he had to change it to scaffold and that's how they learned to sing it

Whoa....

So well sung by the Brothers this traditional song..... The second voice by Phil is awesome good. Just two beautiful voices and two guitars. Immortal voices of the Everly Brothers.... See you in heaven Phil....
