(Melody Traditional - "In the Pines" )
In the Pines-in the Pines, there’s a Greenwood girl
You may see her some night mid the trees -
With her long black hair and her pale blue dress
And a smile that could make your heart freeze.
Ow-woo , Ow-woo ,Ow—oo, Ow-woo
I shiver’d when the cold winds blowed.
Beware, beware of the Greenwood Girl-
Beware lest she capture your mind :
You may search through the Pines
Where the sun never shines
But ‘tis only a headstone you'll find.
Her headstone is broken-bad weather and time
Have worn the sad inscription away-
But she gathers it round her like a comforting shawl
As she sleeps through the long hours of day.
(Special Hallowe'en Verse)
Did you dream in the night of the Greenwood Girl -
Or was she just dreaming of you ?
When it's All Hallows Eve ,and you're lost in the Pines
In the fog, either tale could be true !
I shiver'd when the cold winds blowed.
