Lyrics

Barbara Allen - Joan Baez (瓊·貝茲)

Twas in the merry month of May

 

When green buds all were swelling

 

Sweet William on his death bed lay

 

For love of Barbara Allen

 

He sent his servant to the town

 

To the place where she was dwelling

 

Saying you must come to my master dear

 

If your name be Barbara Allen

 

So slowly slowly she got up

And slowly she drew nigh him

 

And the only words to him did say

 

Young man I think you're dying

 

He turned his face unto the wall

 

And death was in him welling

 

Good-bye good-bye to my friends all

 

Be good to Barbara Allen

 

When he was dead and laid in grave

 

She heard the death bells knelling

 

And every stroke to her did say

 

Hard hearted Barbara Allen

 

Oh mother oh mother go dig my grave

 

Make it both long and narrow

 

Sweet William died of love for me

 

And I will die of sorrow

 

And father oh father go dig my grave

 

Make it both long and narrow

 

Sweet William died on yesterday

 

And I will die tomorrow

 

Barbara Allen was buried

 

In the old churchyard

 

Sweet William was buried beside her

 

Out of sweet William's heart

 

There grew a rose

 

Out of Barbara Allen's a briar

 

They grew and grew in the old churchyard

 

Till they could grow no higher

 

At the end they formed

 

A true lover's knot

 

And the rose grew round the briar
