Garfunkel Art - Barbara Allen Lyrics

  • When green buds all are swellin'.
  • Sweet William on his deathbed lay for love of Barbara Allen.
  • He sent his servant to the town,
  • The place where she did dwell in.
  • Saying, "Master dear has sent me here if your name be Barbara Allen."
  • Then slowly, slowly she got up and slowly she went to him,
  • And all she said when there she came was, "Young man, I think you're dying.
  • "Don't you remember the other night when we were in the tavern?
  • You drank a toast to the ladies there and slighted Barbara Allen."
  • He turned his face unto the wall,
  • He turned his back upon her.
  • "Adieu, adieu, to all my friends.
  • And be kind, be kind to Barbara Allen."
  • As she was wandering on the fields she heard the death bell knellin'.
  • And every note, it seemed to say,
  • "Hard-hearted Barbara Allen!"
  • The more it tolled the more she grieved,
  • She bursted out a-crying.
  • "Oh, pick me up and carry me home.
  • I fear that I am dying."
  • They buried Willy in the old church yard and Barbara in the new one,
  • And from William's grave, there grew a rose, from Barbara's, a green briar.
  • They grew and grew in the old church yard,
  • Till they could grow no higher,
  • And there they tied in a true lover's knot,
  • The red rose and the briar.
