Oh can I go to my love's side?
Oh let me go this day.
Please let me go to my love's side,
Oh mother don't make me stay.

A rose, a rose in April,
And still a rose in June.
I feel the come of winter,
I shall no longer bloom.

Daughter, daughter you cannot go,
Oh cannot go this day.
Your father he forbade you,
And at home you must remain.

You were a rose in April,
And still a rose in June.
If God can send five winters,
And I know my rose will bloom.

Mother, mother I must away,
And onto my true's side.
Bring me to my white horse,
And away to him I'll ride.

She's rode through fields of barley,
And she's rode through fields of corn.
She's come onto her true love,
One hour before the dawn.

Her father he awaken,
And of his daughter's flight,
He's taken up his dagger,
And he's rode into the night.

He's rode through fields of barley,
And he's spurred through fields of corn.
He's come onto her true love's house,
Just before the dawn.

He's found his daughter sleeping,
In her true lover's arms.
He's taken up his dagger,
And it's deep into their hearts.

Oh father, cruel father,
You've killed my love, killed me.
But now I'll rest beside him,
Locked in his arms I'll be. [repeated until the end of track]
