It was in the merry month of MayWhen green bugs were a-swellingSweet William on his death bed layFor the love of BarbriallenHe sent his servant to the townThe place where she'd been dwellingSay master dear has sent me hereIf your name be BarbriallenAnd slowly, slowly she got upAnd slowly she went to himAnd all she said when she got there"Young man, I think you are dying"Oh, don't you remember the other dayWhen we where in a tavern?You drank, your health to the ladies thereAnd you slided BarbriallenHe turned his face unto the wallHe turned his back upon herAdieu, adieu to all my friendsBe kind to BarbriallenShe looked to the east, she looked to the westShe saw his corpse a-coming"Oh, put him down for me", she cried"That I may gaze upon him"The more she looked, the more she grievedShe busted out in cryingOh, pick me up and carry me homeFor I feel like I am dyingThey buried sweet Willy in the old church yardAnd Barbara in the new oneFrom Willy's grave there grew a roseFrom Barbara's a green briarThey grew and they grew on the old church wallAnd could not grow no higherAnd there they tied in a true love's knotThe rose bush and the briar
