Hör' ich ein Waldhorn klingen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Hör' ich ein Waldhorn klingen
Durch das Gebirge hin,
Ich zöge dann so gerne
[Wohl]1 in die blaue Ferne
Zu einer Jägerin.

Im [dunklen]2 Tannenwalde,
Da steht des Försters Haus,
Im [tiefen]3 Wald verborgen.
Da schaut am frühen Morgen
Das Töchterlein heraus.

Der Vater und die Tochter,
die machen Alles wund,
Der Vater schießt die Hirschlein,
die Tochter trifft [die]4 Bürschlein
tief in des Herzens Grund.
