Like a foxfire softly glowing In the stillness of the night In the green grass of the marshland Where I first beheld its light It was almost like a dream fire For it burned so quickly there In the silence of the evening Amid the stillness of the air In the green grass of the marshland Lived a fair and tender one Beside the still waters Our lives had just begun And the sweet love that she gave me Set a fire within my soul Like a thousand tiny foxfires That burned with a single flame of gold 'Twas a dark night in the swampland When she disappeared from sight And the sheriff and the posse They searched all through the night But we never, ever found her Though we searched and searched again Like a foxfire in the moonlight She was lost and never seen again Like a foxfire softly burning Like a candle glowing in the dark Was the love light that she gave me That died in the quicksand of my heart
