    "Down In The Willow Garden" Lyrics

    Kristin Hersh

    Down in the willow garden
    Where me and my love did meet
    There we sat a courtin'
    My love dropped off to sleep
    I drank a bottle of burgundy wine
    My love she did not know
    And there I poisoned that dear little girl
    Under the flank below
    I stabbed her with my dagger
    An ugly bloody knife
    I threw her into the river
    An ugly bloody sight

    My father up and told me
    That money would set me free
    If I would murder thar deal little girl
    Whose name was Rose Connelly
    And now he sits by the window
    Wiping his tear-dimmed eyes
    And now he waits for his own dear son
    Upon the scaffold high
    My race is run, beneath the sun
    Hell is waiting for me
    For I did murder that dear little girl
    Whose name was Rose Connelly
