The Rose Of Allendale (3:22)

Cover of The Very Best Of The Corries

From The Very Best Of The Corries and 4 other releases

“The Rose of Allendale” is a song, with words by Charles Jeffreys and music by Sidney Nelson in the 1840s. Because the song has been recorded by Paddy Reilly and Mary Black, many people mistakenly believe the song to be a (traditional) Irish song. Sometimes it is also believed to be a Scottish song.

The Song is in fact about a maiden from the town of Allendale, Northumberland (in love songs, a rose, regarded as a beautiful and romantic flower, is often the fairest maiden of a region or village).
