Lyrics

In the dark green woods, when the sun was high
I saw a lady riding by
She had flashing eyes and golden hair
She rode upon a dappled mare

In the dark green woods, by the last bird's call
There came a soldier straight and tall
He found his true love waiting there
And he kissed her eyes and her golden hair

In the dark green woods, by the evening star
I saw a soldier ride to war
He never would return again
For in some battle, he was slain

In the dark green woods, the people said
She heard the news her love was dead
But still she waited for him there
With flowers in her golden hair

In the dark green woods, by the pale moonlight
A ghost goes riding every night
She has golden hair, the people say
And talks to shadows on her way
