The Girl in the Wood
by Frankie Laine



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

(Backing remember for the rest of your life)

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 little 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)

Remember for the rest of your life

(Remember)

I wished a hundred times
That she'd never looked at me
With the first wild beauty
Thay only you'd cans'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
