Subject: RE: Req: Chords/Tabs for 'The Bramble & the Rose
Hmmmm. I would have thought we'd have more on this song. You'll find the lyrics and chords here (click) in the Digital Tradition, but I guess we don't have a MIDI. You won't find a lot of tab here because it's difficult to post, but there are some hardy souls who have learned how to post it.
I thought Mary McCaslin or Jim Ringer wrote it, but I see that Barbara Keith wrote it in 1971. It's in Volume 38, #4 of Sing Out! My subscription started with Volume 39. anybody want to send a MIDI for me to post?
Anybody know anything about Barbara Keith? Also - note that this thread was a request for TAB.

Here are the Digital Tradition lyrics for the song. Any corrections?

          THE BRAMBLE AND THE ROSE
(Barbara Keith)

Verse 1:

G D
We have been so close together
C D G
Each a candle, each a flame.
G D
All the dangers were outside us,
C D G
And we knew them all by name.

CHORUS:
G D C G
See how the bramble and the rose
C D
Intertwine
G D C G
Love grows like a bramble and a rose
C D G
Round each other we will twine.

Verse 2:
Now I've hurt you, and it hurts me
Just to see what we can do
To ourselves and to each other
Without really meaning to.


Verse 3:
So put your arms around me
And we'll sing a true love song.
We will learn to sing together,
Sing and laugh the whole night long.
