Black Rose of Kildare

By Country Lyrics Store
Every colour except black
Is in the blossom of a rose
It’s not found in any garden
Why that is nobody knows.

Boys chase after fair haired girls
The legend does declare
But the beauty by my side
Has shiny ebony hair.

Chorus

Of all the thorny blooms
Their beauty can’t compare
To the one which stole my heart
She’s my black rose of Kildare.

***

Can there ever be more beauty
In all the natural world
Than the sight of a red rose
When its petals have unfurled.

The yellow rose of Texas
Was the only one for some?
But not one can measure up
To what my girl has now become.

Chorus

Of all the thorny blooms
Their beauty can’t compare
To the one which stole my heart
She’s my black rose of Kildare.

***

When we were in our childish youth
And playing round about
She stood out from the other girls
Long before she blossomed out.

I know she’s not a rambler
For she holds me…oh so tight
And because she never wanders
I just know our love is right.

Chorus

Of all the thorny blooms
Their beauty can’t compare
To the one which stole my heart
She’s my black rose of Kildare.

***

I know she’s not a climber
For a fortune I have none
And still she stands beside me
Declaring I’m the only one.

Truly she’s a hybrid rose
Standing lonesome straight and tall
No other flower can touch her
And her splendour outstrips all.

Chorus

Of all the thorny blooms
Their beauty can’t compare
To the one which stole my heart
She’s my black rose of Kildare.
