​The Girl On The Greenbriar Shore

This song is by Bob Dylan and appears on the compilation album Tell Tale Signs (2008).

'Twas in the year of '92,
In the merry month of June
I left my mother and a home so dear
All for that girl on the greenbriar shore

My mother, she says, "Son, don't go
Don't leave me here alone
Don't leave your mother and a home so dear
Never trust a girl on the greenbriar shore"

But I was young and reckless too
And I craved a reckless life
I left my mother and a home so dear
And I took that girl to be my wife

Her hair was dark and curly too
And her lovin' eyes were blue
Her cheeks were like the red red rose
That girl I loved from the greenbriar shore

The years rolled on and the months rolled by
She left me all alone
Now I remember what my mother said
"Never trust the girl on the greenbriar shore"
