Das Lied vom Scheiden

Language: German

Eine Sängerin und Ännchen

Die Sängerin.
Es zog ein Jägersmann aus in das Feld,
Zu werden ein tapferer Kriegesheld,
Sein Liebchen stand an dem grünen Zaun,
Dem herrlichen Jäger dort nachzuschau'n.
Es winkte noch ein Mal: Ade!
Ach, Scheiden, das Scheiden thut weh!

Ja, Scheiden, das Scheiden thut weh!

Fort ist er! die liebenden Augen erschau'n
  Nichts mehr!
Da weinet das Liebchen am grünen Zaun
  So sehr!
Er schwand da hinter des Stromes Flut,
Dem Mägdlein starrte vor Jammer das Blut!
Ach, Scheiden, das Scheiden thut weh!
Nur Wiedersehn heilet das Weh!

Ja, Wiedersehn heilet das Weh!

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, it is supported financially by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors.
