Thread Name: Lyr Req: 'Rose, Rose' round: More verses?
Subject: RE:
I know this thread is very old, but I woke up this morning with this song in my head. I had learned it in camp, and someone had written out a bunch of verses for me, but I lost the paper. I've spent an hour looking for lyrics and my search finally ended here. Yes! Anyways, here are the ones I remembered ( besides the first "Rose..."):
I won't be my father's Jack
And I won't be my mother's Jill
I just want to be a fiddler's wife
And fiddle at my will

Ah, poor bird
Why art thou
Flying in the shadows
Of this dark hour?

Ah, poor bird
Take thy flight
High above the shadows
Of this sad night
