QUEEN JANE LAY IN LABOR FOR THREE DAYS OR FOUR
SHE WEEPED AND SHE WAILED AND SHE GRIEVED HER HEART SORE
SHE CALLED TO HER WOMEN, HER WOMEN CAME O’ER
SAY THE ROSE OF THE COUNTY SHALL FLOURISH NO MORE

HER WOMEN GREW WEARY, HER WOMEN WERE SORE
QUEEN JANE SAID: GOOD WOMEN, IF GOOD WOMEN YOU ARE
YOU’LL OPEN MY SIDE THAT MY BABY IS BORN
SAY THE ROSE OF THE COUNTY SHALL FLOURISH NO MORE

OH NO, CRIED THE WOMEN, THEIR EYES TO THE FLOOR
WE NEVER COULD DO WHAT YOU’RE ASKIN’ US FOR
WE’LL NOT LOSE THE BRANCH AND THE ROOT OF THE FLO’ER
SAY THE ROSE OF THE COUNTY SHALL FLOURISH NO MORE

QUEEN JANE LAY IN LABOR STILL THREE DAYS THE MORE
SHE WEEPED AND SHE WAILED AND SHE GRIEVED HER HEART SORE
SHE CALLED TO KING HENRY, KING HENRY CAME O’ER
SAY THE ROSE OF THE COUNTY SHALL FLOURISH NO MORE

QUEEN JANE SHE GREW WEARY, QUEEN JANE SHE WAS SORE
QUEEN JANE SAID: KING HENRY, IF A GOOD MAN YOU ARE
YOU’LL OPEN MY SIDE THAT MY BABY IS BORN
SAY THE ROSE OF THE COUNTY SHALL FLOURISH NO MORE

OH NO, CRIED KING HENRY, HIS EYES TO THE FLOOR
I NEVER COULD DO WHAT YOU’RE ASKIN’ ME FOR
I’LL NOT LOSE THE BRANCH AND THE ROOT OF THE FLO’ER
SAY THE ROSE OF THE COUNTY SHALL FLOURISH NO MORE

QUEEN JANE LAY IN LABOR THREE DAYS AND A SCORE
SHE WEEPED AND SHE WAILED AND SHE GRIEVED HER HEART SORE
SHE CALLED TO THE HEAVENS, THE HEAVENS CAME O’ER
SAY THE ROSE OF THE COUNTY SHALL FLOURISH NO MORE

KING HENRY KNELT DOWN TO HIS QUEEN JANE ADORED
SAYIN’: JANIE, OH JANIE, THIS THING YOU’VE ENDURED
I’LL OPEN YOUR SIDE THAT OUR BABY IS BORN
SAY THE ROSE OF THE COUNTY SHALL FLOURISH NO MORE

WAS FIDDLIN’ AND DANCIN’ WHEN THE BABY WAS BORN
BUT QUEEN JANE BELOVED LAY COLD AS A STONE
KING HENRY MADE MERRY, KING HENRY, HE MOURNED
SAY THE ROSE OF THE COUNTY SHALL FLOURISH NO MORE

THE RED ROSE OF THE COUNTY SHALL FLOURISH NO MORE
