Simon & Garfunkel - Barbriallen



It was in the merry month of May,
When green buds were a-swelling,
Sweet William on his death bed lay
For the love of Barbriallen.
He sent his servant to the town,
The place where she'd been dwelling,
Saying master dear has sent me here
If your name be Barbriallen.
And slowly, slowly she got up,
And slowly she went to him,
And all she said when she got there:
"Young man, I think you are dying."
Oh, don't you remember the other day
When we where in a tavern,
You drank, your health to the ladies there
And you slighted Barbriallen?
He turned his face unto the wall,
He turned his back upon her:
Adieu, adieu to all my friends
Be kind to Barbriallen.
She looked to the east, she looked to the west,
She 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 grieved,
She busted out in crying:
"Oh, pick me up and carry me home
For I feel like I am dying."
They buried sweet Willy in the old church yard
And Barbara in the new one.
From Willy's grave there grew a rose,
From Barbara's a green briar.
They grew and they grew on the old church wall
And could not grow no higher,
And there they tied in a true love's knot
The rose bush and the briar.

You may edit it if you want. I no longer care about making this site better and I won't until the situation at the top changes.

Oh, I don't really care, it's just that I have the original album and I had never heard this song, hence my perplexity. It was also interpreted (under the title of "Barbara Allen") by Art Garfunkel alone on his album "Angel Clare" (1973), but the melody is not quite the same.
