[C]Twas in the merry month of May
When [F]flowers were a [C]bloomin'
Sweet [F]Willie on his [C]deathbed [Am]lay   
For the [C]love of [G7]Barbara [C]Allen


He sent his servant to the town
The [F]town where she did [C]dwell in
Saying [F]master dear has [C]sent me [Am]here   
If your [C]name be [G7]Barbara [C]Allen


Then slowly slowly she got up
And [F]slowly she went [C]to him
And [F]all she said when [C]she got [Am]there
Young [C]man I [G7]think you're [C]dying


Oh don't you remember the other day
When [F]we were in the [C]tavern
You [F]drank your health to the [C]ladies [Am]there
And you [C]slighted [G7]Barbara [C]Allen


He turned his face unto the wall
He [F]turned his back up[C]on her
A[F]dieu adieu to [C]all my [Am]friends
Be [C]kind to [G7]Barbara [C]Allen


She looked to the east she looked to the west
She [F]saw his corpse a-[C]comin'
Oh [F]sit him down for [C]me she [Am]cried
That [C]I may [G7]gaze upon [C]him  


The more she looked the more she grieved
She [F]busted out to [C]cryin'
Sayin' [F]pick me up and [C]carry me [Am]home   
For [C]I feel [G7]like I am [C]dyin'


They buried Willie in the old churchyard
And [F]Barbara in the [C]new one
From [F]Willie's grave there [C]grew a [Am]rose   
From [C]Barbara's [G7]a green [C]brier


They grew and grew to the old church wall
And [F]could not grow no [C]higher
And [F]there they died in a [C]true love-[Am]knot   
The [C]rosebush [G7]and the [C]brier


Twas in the merry month of May
When flowers were a bloomin'
Sweet Willie on his deathbed lay
For the love of Barbara Allen

He sent his servant to the town
The town 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 she got there
Young man I think you're dying

Oh don't you remember the other day
When we were in the tavern
You drank your health to the ladies there
And you slighted Barbara Allen

He turned his face unto the wall
He turned his back upon her
Adieu adieu to all my friends
Be kind to Barbara Allen

She looked to the east she looked to the west
She saw his corpse a-comin'
Oh sit him down for me she cried
That I may gaze upon him

The more she looked the more she grieved
She busted out to cryin'
Sayin' pick me up and carry me home
For I feel like I am dyin'

They buried Willie in the old churchyard
And Barbara in the new one
From Willie's grave there grew a rose
From Barbara's a green brier

They grew and grew to the old church wall
And could not grow no higher
And there they died in a true love-knot
The rosebush and the brier
