	  		Where The Wild Rosees Grow 
========================== 
by Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds + Kylie Minogue 
 
        Gm              Cm Gm         Bb            D 
R: They call me the wild rose, but my name is Eliza Day 
             Gm                    Cm Gm                    F   Gm 
   Why, they call me like "I do not know", for my name is Eliza Day 
 
   Gm                                Bb                  Cm 
1. On the first day I saw her I knew she was the one she stared in my eyes  
         D 
   and smiled 
           Gm                          Bb          Cm 
   For her lips with the colour of the roses, that grew down the river 
       D 
   All bloody and wine 
           Gm                        Bb                 Cm 
   When he knocked on my door and he entered the room the trembling subside  
              D 
   and in his sure embrace 
            Gm                 Bb                 Cm 
   He would be my first lad, a worker for hand he wiped off the tears,  
        D 
   that run down my face 
 
        Gm              Cm Gm         Bb            D 
R: They call me the wild rose, but my name is Eliza Day 
             Gm                    Cm Gm                    F   Gm 
   Why, they call me like "I do not know", for my name is Eliza Day 
 
          Gm                         Bb                 Cm 
2. On the second day I brought her a flower, she's more beautiful 
            D 
   Than any woman I see 
          Gm                     Bb                  Cm 
   I said do you know, where the wild roses grow, so sweet and scarlet  
       D 
   and free 
          Gm                        Bb                       Cm 
   On the second day he came with a single red rose, he said give me  
                      D 
   your loss and your sorrow 
     Gm                  Bb                   Cm 
   I nodded my head as I lay on the bed, if I show you the roses will you 
   D 
   follow 
 
 
        Gm              Cm Gm         Bb            D 
R: They call me the wild rose, but my name is Eliza Day 
             Gm                    Cm Gm                    F   Gm 
   Why, they call me like "I do not know", for my name is Eliza Day 
 
          Gm                          Bb        Cm 
3. On the third day he took me to the river. he showed me the roses  
          D 
   and we kissed 
           Gm                       Bb                   Cm 
   And the last thing I heard was a martered word, as he melt above me  
          D 
   with a rock in his face 
          Gm                            Bb                   Cm 
   On the last day I took her where the wild roses grow, she lay on the  
                  D 
   bank, the wind light as a thief 
         Gm                            Bb                    Cm 
   And I kissed her good-bye, said all beauty must die, as I lent down  
                 D 
   and planted a rose between her tears 
 
 
        Gm              Cm Gm         Bb            D 
R: They call me the wild rose, but my name is Eliza Day 
             Gm                    Cm Gm                    F   Gm 
   Why, they call me like "I do not know", for my name is Eliza Day  (x3)
