In der Ferne

Language: German (Deutsch)

Nun leb' wohl, du kleine Gasse, nun ade, du stilles Dach.
Vater, Mutter sah'n mir traurig, und die Liebste sah mir nach.

Hier in weiter, weiter Ferne, wie's mich nach der Heimat zieht!
Lustig singen die Gesellen; doch es ist ein falsches Lied.

Andre Städtchen kommen freilich, andre Mädchen zu Gesicht;
Ach, wohl sind es andre Mädchen, doch die Eine ist es nicht!

Andre Städtchen, andre Mädchen, ich da mittendrin so stumm!
Andre Mädchen, andre Städtchen, o wie gerne kehrt' ich um!
