Cabo 3. bandi

The[D] sky was clear, the[G] morning [D]fair
No breath came over the [A]sea  
When [D]Mary left her [G]highland [D]home
And wandered [A]forth with [D]me  
Though flowers be[G]decked the [D]mountain side
And fragrance filled the [A]vale
By [D]far the sweetest [G]flower [D]there
Was the rose of [A]Allen[D]dale

Sweet [D]rose of Allen[G]dale,
Sweet [Em]rose of Allen[A]dale
By [D]far the sweetest [G]flower [D]there
was the rose of [A]Allen[D]dale

Wher[D]ever I wandered, through the [G]east or to the[D]west
Though fate began to [A]sour
A [D]solace still was [G]she to [D]me  
In sorrow's [A]lonely [D]hour
When tempests [G]lashed our [D]lonely barque
And rent her shiv'ring [A]sails
One [D]maiden form with[G]stood the [D]storm
Was the rose of [A]Allen[D]dale

Sweet [D]rose of Allen[G]dale,
Sweet [Em]rose of Allen[A]dale
One [D]maiden's form with[G]stood the [D]storm
was the rose of [A]Allen[D]dale

And [D]when my fever'd [G]lips were [D]parched
On Africa's burning [A]sands
She [D]whispered hopes of [G]happi[D]ness
And dreams of [A]foreign [D]land
My life has [G]been a [D]wilderness
Unblest by fortune's [A]gale
Had [D]fate not linked my [G]lot to [D]hers
the [G]Rose of [A]Allen[D]dale

Sweet [D]rose of Allen[G]dale,
Sweet [Em]rose of Allen[A]dale
Had [D]fate not linked my [G]love to [D]hers
was the rose of [A]Allen[D]dale

Sweet [D]rose of Allen[G]dale,
Sweet [Em]rose of Allen[A]dale
Had [D]fate not linked my [G]love to [D]hers
was the rose of [A]Allen[D]dale

Cabo 3. bandi

The sky was clear, the morning fair
No breath came over the sea
When Mary left her highland home
And wandered forth with me
Though flowers bedecked the mountain side
And fragrance filled the vale
By far the sweetest flower there
Was the rose of Allendale

Sweet rose of Allendale,
Sweet rose of Allendale
By far the sweetest flower there
was the rose of Allendale

Wherever I wandered, through the east or to thewest
Though fate began to sour
A solace still was she to me
In sorrow's lonely hour
When tempests lashed our lonely barque
And rent her shiv'ring sails
One maiden form withstood the storm
Was the rose of Allendale

Sweet rose of Allendale,
Sweet rose of Allendale
One maiden's form withstood the storm
was the rose of Allendale

And when my fever'd lips were parched
On Africa's burning sands
She whispered hopes of happiness
And dreams of foreign land
My life has been a wilderness
Unblest by fortune's gale
Had fate not linked my lot to hers
the Rose of Allendale

Sweet rose of Allendale,
Sweet rose of Allendale
Had fate not linked my love to hers
was the rose of Allendale

Sweet rose of Allendale,
Sweet rose of Allendale
Had fate not linked my love to hers
was the rose of Allendale
