Barbara Allen Recorded by The Everly Brothers [3/4 time]
C Twas in the merry month of May F C When flowers were a bloomin' F C Am Sweet Willie on his deathbed lay C G7 C For the love of Barbara Allen
He sent his servant to the town F C The town where she did dwell in F C Am Saying master dear has sent me here C G7 C If your name be Barbara Allen
Then slowly slowly she got up F C And slowly she went to him F C Am And all she said when she got there C G7 C Young man I think you're dying
Oh don't you remember the other day F C When we were in the tavern F C Am You drank your health to the ladies there C G7 C And you slighted Barbara Allen
He turned his face unto the wall F C He turned his back upon her F C Am Adieu adieu to all my friends C G7 C Be kind to Barbara Allen
She looked to the east she looked to the west F C She saw his corpse a-comin' F C Am Oh sit him down for me she cried C G7 C That I may gaze upon him
The more she looked the more she grieved F C She busted out to cryin' F C Am Sayin' pick me up and carry me home C G7 C For I feel like I am dyin'
They buried Willie in the old churchyard F C And Barbara in the new one F C Am From Willie's grave there grew a rose C G7 C From Barbara's a green brier
They grew and grew to the old church wall F C And could not grow no higher F C Am And there they died in a true love-knot C G7 C The rosebush and the brier
