|Singer leaves his home, despite his brokenhearted mother's warnings, for the girl on the greenbriar shore. The girl leaves him, and he remembers his mother's words -- "Never trust a girl on the greenbriar shore." For the (fragile) relationship between this piece and "The New River Shore (The Green Brier Shore; The Red River Shore)" [Laws M26], see the notes on that piece. - RBW|
'Twas in the year of '92, In the merry month of June, I left my mother and a home so dear For the girl I loved on the greenbriar shore. My mother dear, she came to me And said "Oh son, don't go, " "Don't leave your mother and a home so dear To trust a girl on the greenbriar shore. " But I was young and reckless too, And I craved a reckless life- I left my mother with a broken heart And I choosed that girl to be m' wife
Her hair was dark and curly too And her loving eyes were blue; Her cheeks were like the red red rose The girl I loved on the greenbriar shore. The years rolled on and the months rolled by She left me all alone Now I remember what mother said Never trust a girl on the greenbriar shore.
