Jägerlied

Language: German (Deutsch)

Grün liebt mein Mädel, 
Grün ist so schön!
Grün ist der Jäger,
Nur grün will sie seh'n. 

Grün sind die Hügel
Und grün ist die Au. 
Grün blitz't die Hoffnung,
Wenns Mädel ich schau. 

Grün Mieder kleidet
Dem Mädel so fein, 
Grün muß d'rum eben 
Ihr Herzliebster fein. 

Und sollt' ich fallen
In blutrother Schlacht,
Wird doch in Grünen
Mein Grab mir gemacht.


Confirmed with Gedichte von Pulvermacher, Breslau: Kohn & Hancke, 1860, page 45.
