The[D] morning was fair,the[G] sky's were[D] clear
No breath came o;re the[A] sea
When[D] Mare left her[G] highland[D] home
And[G] wandered[A] forth with[D] me
Though[A] flowere decked the[D] mountain side
And[G] fragrance[D] filled the[A] vale
By[D] far the sweetest[G] flower[D] there
Was the[G] rose of[A] Allen[D]dale
[Chorus]
Was[D] the rose of Allen[G]dale,was the[Bm] rose of Allen[A]dale
By[G] far the sweetest[D] flower there,was the[G] rose of [A7]Allen[D]dale
[2]
Where'er I wandered east or west,
Tho'faith began to lour
A solace still she was to me
In sorrow's lonely hour
When tempest lashed our lonely barque
And rent her shivring sail
One maiden form withstood the storm
'Twas the rose of Allendale
[3]
And when my fever'd lips were parched
On Afrie's burning sands
She whispered hopes of happiness
And tales of distant lands
My life has been a wilderness
Unbiest by fortune's gale
Had faith not linked my lot to hers
The rose of Allendale
 

THE ROSE OF ALLENDALE (Corries´ Version) 4/4

 

G                       Em          C   -    D       G

The morn was fair, the skies were clear

                               Em-G       D-D7

No breath came over the sea

            G       Em        C           G

When Mary left her hieland cot

            C              D            G

And wandered forth with me

               D7         D                  G             G7

Though flowers decked the mountainside

        C             G   - Am  D-D7

And fragrance filled the vale

     G          Em            C         G

By far the sweetest flower there

                 C           D     G

Was the Rose of Allendale

 

                                    Em-C

T’was the Rose of Allendale

                    Am        C Am D

T’was  the Rose of Allendale

      C           D7             G

By far the sweetest flower there

                   C             D7   G

T’was the Rose of Allendale


 

Where e'er I wandered east or west

Though fate began to lour

A solace still was she to me

In sorrow's lonely hour

When tempests wrecked our galant barque

And rent her shivering sail

One maiden's form withstood the storm

The Rose of Allendale

 

T’was the Rose of Allendale

T’was  the Rose of Allendale

One maiden's form withstood the storm

'Twas the Rose of Allendale

 

And when my fever'd lips were parched

On Afric's burning sands

She whispered hopes of happiness

And tales of distant lands

My life had been a wilderness

Unblessed by fortune's gale

Had fate not linked my lot to hers

The Rose of Allendale

 

T’was the Rose of Allendale

T’was  the Rose of Allendale

Had fate not linked my lot to hers

T’was the Rose of Allendale

Repeat Chorus
