Schwa Lyrics

Down in the Willow Garden

Lyricist: Traditional
Vocalist: Cliff Starbuck
Down in the willow garden 
where me and my love did meet 
'twas there we sat a courting 
my love fell fast asleep 

I had a bottle of the burglar's wine 
my love she did not know 
for I did poison that dear little girl 
down on the banks below 

I drew my saber through her 
it was a bloody knife 
I threw her in the river 
it was a dreadful sight 

My father often told me 
that money would set me free 
if I did poison that dear little girl 
whose name was Rose Connely 

Now he sits in his own cabin door 
a wiping his tear stained eyes 
staring at his only son 
upon the scaffold high 

My race is run beneath the sun 
the devil he waits for me 
for I did poison that dear little girl 
whose name was Rose Connely
