Wir zogen manchen Wald entlang

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wir zogen manchen Wald entlang, 
Viel fröhliche Gesellen,
Und salutierten mit Gesang 
Die Burgen und die Quellen.

Nun sang man den zu Grabe still,
Dem sie zur Hochzeit geigen;
Der andre in den Himmel will
Auf wilden Felsen steigen.

Von den einsamen Felsensteigen 
Schau' ich ins land so weit,
Da dunkelt und rauscht's so eigen
Von der alten schönen Zeit.
