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 your a man you'll never see a girl Quite as fair Remember me oh remember me Her eyes were green as grassy pools Lookin right at me Her hair was red and grown with leaves Just like an autumn tree She moved her tiny hands And she made a litle turn She swayed in the wind Just like a graceful fern 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 memory Of the girl in the wood Remember me oh remember me Remember for the rest of your life I wished a hundred times That she'd never looked at me With the first wild beauty They only you'd can't see For man cannot find it When he's lookin' for a wife And he'll end up in bachelor hood The rest of his life Remember me oh remember me Remember for the rest of your life Remember for the rest of your life
