Saint Therese

	  		
Intro: C G D Em C G D 

C                        G 
Darling mother would you guide my hand  
   D                            Em 
My love she?s in America with a terry band  
    C                       G 
Her dark-flowing hair rolls all down her breast  
        D                          Em 
It?s as soft as the night that she went and left  
C             G 
Sandy was the river that she walked  
       D                       Em 
It was out the door and it was off the dock,  
    C                     G 
The thunder ahead and the steamboat?s dreams  
   D                    Em 
Of lily-white smoke and fine rafting things.  

C G D Em (x2) (With harmonica) 

    C                         G 
She boarded that ship and she sent it well  
D                      Em 
Fast and lonesome as a kind farewell  
  C                   G 
I asked her grace for twelve little towns  
       D                      Em 
With a market in all and open fields around  
    C                      G 
She took the East, and she took the West  
D                         Em 
Elizabeth?s the girl that I love the best  
   C                       G 
My house was robbed when I shut the door  
    D                    Em 
And boarded it up with a rusted oar.  
   C G D 
An oar. 


C                       G 
Bring me a rose, St. Therese, St. Therese  
          D                      Em 
Would you bring me a rose St. Therese, St. Therese 
C                          G 
All the little flowers are covered and blessed  
          D                      Em 
Would you bring me a rose St. Therese.  

C G D Em (x2) (With harmonica) 

  C                          G 
I saw her at the market just yesterday  
  D                  Em 
I said hello but she looked the other way  
    C                        G 
She wore a coat of black and two old shoes  
       D                        Em 
And my eyes were light with the devil?s dues  
  C                      G 
I gave her a whistle and three hundred cries  
    D                       Em 
And there I found a rose as white as lye  
        C               G 
You can wash with water every day  
         D                                Em 
But that dirt will stain your hide in the same old way.  
     C G D 
That way. 


C G D Em (x2) (with harmonica) 

C G D Em C G D (with violin) 

tabchorus
C G Now two devils danced on a barrel of lime D Em You know they?re devils, mama, but you took a bad time C G It was a slipped-up jig with iron feet D Em That fled like a coward when lovers meet C G But there in the garden I can see you fine D Em Your hand full of roses smell better than wine C G To scatter your flowers for the one you love D Em As tender as the lightning in the sky above. C G D Em C G D Above, Above.

C G Bring me a rose, St. Therese, St. Therese D Em Would you bring me a rose St. Therese, St. Therese. C G All the little flowers are covered and blessed D Em Would you bring me a rose St. Therese. C G D Em C G D A Rose, a rose. C G Now Bring me a rose, St. Therese, St. Therese Would you bring me a rose St. Therese, Therese. All the little flowers are covered and blessed Would you bring me a rose St. Therese.
