THE BRIAR AND THE ROSE                 TOM WAITS

Capo 1st Fret


  D     A7         A    D
I Fell asleep down by a stream
            G       A7        D
And there I had the strangest dream
    G       F#m       F#          G
And down by Brennan's Glen there grows
  D     A7    D
A briar and a rose
 
          G           A7
There's a tree in the forest
      G          D
And I Don't know where
G         D        A7       A
I built a nest out of your hair
    D        A7   D      G
And climbing up into the air
    D     A7      D
The briar and the rose

    
        D         A7       A       D
Well I don't know how long it has been
          G       A7        D
But I was born in Brennan's Glen
    G        F#m     F#            G
And near the end of spring there grows
  D     A7    D
A briar and a rose

  G          A7       G     D
I picked the rose one early morn
  G          D      A7     A
I pricked my finger on a thorn
        D        A7         D       G
They've grown so high it's winding wove
    D      A7        D
The briar 'round the rose

  D        A7        A     D
I tried to tear them both apart
         G      A7    D
I felt a bullet in my heart
    G           F#m   F#            G
And all dressed up in spring's new clothes
    D     A7      D
The briar and the rose

    G        D          G     D
And when I'm buried and in my grave 
G          D     A7
Tell me so I may know
     D         A7      D         G
Your tears may fall to make love grow
    D     A7      D
The briar and the rose

     D         A7      D         G
Your tears may fall to make love grow
    D     A7      D
The briar and the rose

The briar 'round the rose

C          G     D7

     G         D7      G         C
Your tears may fall to make love grow
    G     D7      G
The briar and the rose

     G         D7      G         C
Your tears may fall to make love grow
    G     D7      G
The briar and the rose
