Kristin Hersh lyrics : "Down In The Willow Garden"

Down in the willow garden
Where me and my love did meet
There we sat a courtin'

My love dropped off to sleep
I drank a bottle of burgundy wine
My love she did not know

And there I poisoned that dear little girl
Under the flank below
I stabbed her with my dagger

An ugly bloody knife
I threw her into the river
An ugly bloody sight

My father up and told me
That money would set me free
If I would murder thar deal little girl

Whose name was Rose Connelly
And now he sits by the window
Wiping his tear-dimmed eyes

And now he waits for his own dear son
Upon the scaffold high
My race is run, beneath the sun

Hell is waiting for me
For I did murder that dear little girl
Whose name was Rose Connelly
