Where the Wild Roses Grow

Nick Cave / Kylie Minogue & Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds (1995)

Em A5 Em
He called me the wild ro-ose
G B
But my name was Elisa Day.
Em A5 Em
Why he called me that I do not kno-ow
Em D5 Em
For my name was Elisa Day.
 
Em G
From the first day I saw her I knew she was the one
Em B
She stared in my eyes and smiled.
Em G
Her lips were the colour of the roses
Em B
That grow down the river all bloody and wild.
 
Em G
When he knocked on my door and entered the room
Am B
My trembling subsided in his sure embrace.
Em G
He would be my first man and with a careful hand
Am B B7
He wiped off the tears that run down my face.
He called me the wild rose - But my name was Elisa Day. 
Why he called me that I do not know - For my name was Elisa Day. 
 
On the second day I brought her a flower 
She was more beautiful than any woman I'd seen. 
I said "Do you know where the wild roses grow 
so sweet and scarlet and free?" 
 
On the second day he came with a single red rose 
He said "Give me your lust and your sorrow." 
I nodded my head as I lay on the bed 
"If I show you the roses, will you follow?" 
He called me the wild rose - But my name was Elisa Day. 
Why he called me that I do not know - For my name was Elisa Day. 
 
On the third day he took me to the river 
He showed me the roses and we kissed. 
And the last thing I heard was a martyr word 
As he knelt above me with a rock in his fist. 
 
On the last day I took her where the wild roses grow 
She lay on the banks the wind light as a thief. 
And I kissed her goodbye, said "All beauty must die." 
And I leant down and planted a rose between her teeth. 
He called me the wild rose - But my name was Elisa Day. 
Why he called me that I do not know - For my name was Elisa Day.
