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
