[G]The morn was fair, the [C]skies were [G]clear

No breath came o’er the [D]sea

When [G]Mary left her [C]highland [G]home

And [C]wandered [D]forth with [G]me

Though [D]flowers deck’d the [G]mountainside

And [C]fragrance [G]filled the [D]vale

By [G]far the sweetest [C]flower [G]there

Was the [C]Rose of [D]Allen[G]dale.

Chorus

Was the Rose of Allen[C]dale

Was the [Am]Rose of Allen[D]dale

By [C]far the sweetest [G]flower there

Was the [C]Rose of [D7]Allen[G]dale.

Where’er I wandered, east or west
Tho’ fate began to lour
A solace still she was to me
In sorrow’s lonely hour
When tempests lashed our lonely barque
And rent her shiv’ring sail
One maiden form withstood the storm
‘Twas the Rose of Allendale.

Chorus

And when my fever’d lips were parched
On Afric’s burning sands
She whispered hopes of happiness
And tales of distant lands
My life has been a wilderness
Unblest by fortune’s gale
Had fate not linked my lot to hers
The Rose of Allendale.
