The version I have has been modernized, which is unfortunate.  Anyway, 
after those so kindly typed in by Charissa I have the two following verses:


They buried her in the old churchyard,
Sweet William's grave was nigh her,
And from his heart grew a red, red, rose,
And from her heart a briar.

They grew and grewup the old church wall,
'Till they could grow no higher,
Until they tied a true lover's knot,
The red rose and the briar.


Hope this helps.
