KATE WOLF


Emma Rose Lyrics

Emma rose
A e d a
When Emma Rose was ten years old her father passed away
F#m b d e7
She cried to think he'd never see her on her wedding
day.
A e d a
And then her mother sickened and left her on her own
Bm g d e7
Saying, "Emma Rose, it grieves me to leave you so
alone." (tell me)

A e d e - a
How long, how long, will it be, til you're returning?
C# f#m d e7
How long, how long, must I keep the candles burning?

A e d a
When Emma Rose was sixteen years, she was courted and
wed
F#m b d e7
By Danny Jay the neighbor boy, a fine young man they
said
A e d a
And in the flowering of their love, Emma had a son
Bm g d a
And Danny left one morning before the rising of the
sun..

A e d e - a
Tell me how long, how long, will it be, til you're
returning?
C# f#m d e7
How long, how long, must I keep the candles burning?

A e d a
The years went by and Emma Rose grew bitter in her
grief
F#m b d e7
Of all the men who came and went, none gave her any
peace
A e d a
And even age could not erase the beauty in her face
Bm g d a
But Emma Rose had eyes for one who left without a trace

A e d e - a
Tell me how long, how long, will it be, til you're
returning?
C# f#m d e7
How long, how long, must I keep the candles burning?

A e d a
Emma lives alone now, the child is grown and gone
F#m b d e7
Some say they see her now and then on the days she
comes to town
A e d a
If you're traveling North, there's a mailbox on the
road
Bm g d a
And all it says is Emma Rose in letters faint and old.

A e d e - a
Tell me how long, how long, will it be, til you're
returning?
C# f#m d e7
How long, how long, must I keep the candles burning?
