The Girl In The Wood Lyrics

Oh, when i was a young boy
and drove my mother wild,
i met a maiden in the woods
and she said
"child, look deep into my green eyes
and at my autumn hair,
when you're a man you'll never see
a girl quite as fair".
Chorus:
remember me
remember me
remember me
for the rest of your life.
Her eyes were green as grassy pools
looking right at me,
and her hair was red and grown with leaves
just like an autumn tree
she moved her tiny hands
and she made a little turn.
she swayed in the wind
just like a graceful fern.
Chorus
I swore as she vanished
that when i was full grown,
i'd have a girl just like her
to be my very own.
and now i am a man
and i'd marry if i could
but i can't lose the mem'ry
of the girl in the wood.
Chorus
I've wished a hundred times
that she'd never looked at me.
with the first wild beauty
that only youth can see,
for a man cannot find it
when he's looking for a wife,
and he'll end up in bachelorhood
the rest of his life.
Chorus
