Tears For Beers

Tears For Beers - Banks Of The Roses

When I was a wee thing and easy led astray

It's before I would work, I would rather sport and play

It's before I would work, I would rather sport and play

With my Johnny on the banks of red roses

On the banks of red roses my love and I sat down

He took out his fiddle and began to play a tune

And when the tune was ended his love broke down and cried

"Oh Johnny, darling Johnny, never leave me"

He took out his pocket knife and it was long and sharp

And he plunged it through and through the bonnie lassie's heart

He plunged it through and through the bonnie lassie's heart

And he let her lying low on the roses

(repeat first verse)
