Along the banks

The wild rose grows

In rushing water

River flows

Between the brambles

Deep, enclosed

A secret yet untold

Two lovers lay

In forest dell

Entwined in tryst

In danger's spell

And both of them

Found death, as well

At the hands of

A jealous man

Deep in woods

In sweet repose

Her body lies

Where the wild rose grows

And the banjo man

A ballad chose

"Only the Wild Rose Knows"

Playing his song

To the village kin

Plucks the strings

A new verse to spin

They say on nights

In the full moonlight

In the shadow of the pines

A woman walks

Silhouette grows

Walking along the

River's edge

But only the wild rose knows
