GUEST,Sarah Origins: Rose, Rose, Rose, Rose (Traditional) (105* d) RE: Tune Req: Rose, Rose, Rose, Rose (Traditional) 27 Oct 05

Found this by googling some of the lyrics and thought I'd add the lyrics I learned, since they're a bit different from anyone else's.

I learned this from a friend who learned it at her church camp in middle school.

Rose rose rose red
Will I ever see thee wed?
I will marry at thy will sire,
at thy will

Oh poor bird
where art thou?
Lying in the shadows
of this old house

Probably just a mishearing of the more common lines "flying in the shadows" and the like.
