Thread Name: Lyr Req: Bushes and Briars
Subject: RE: Bushes and briars
From http://www.recmusic.org/lieder/v/volkslieder/bushes.briars.html

Through bushes and through briars I lately took my way;
All for to hear the small birds sing and the lambs to skip and play.
I overheard my own true love, her voice it was so clear;
"Long time I have been waiting for the coming of my dear.
Sometimes I am uneasy and troubled in my mind,
Sometimes I think I'll go to my love and tell to him my mind.
And if I should go to my love, my love he will say nay,
If I show to him my boldness, he'll ne'er love me again."
