Chorus
There's a little chapel in the wildwood
Des haaßt ganz anfoch nur: im Wald steht a Kapölln
Und days san Tag - und Kindheit, des haaßt childhood
And I imagine haaßt, i kennt ma was vurstölln

I still keep one of the wildwood flowers
Des haaßt I hab no de Zyklam' dahaam
Fichten und Latschen san de wildwood powers
Firs and pines, des gibt a Kraft als wie a Baam

"my father" war in Wahrheit gar net meiner
And the "sheep" – des haaßt de "Schaf" – war'n Kiah
Mit "hot blooded" drah i halt a bissl eina
I imagine grad, es war so schee mit ihr

"Wildwood hours“ san de "scheenen Stunden"
"Years went by" haaßt "jahrelang is des scho her"
der "grown up man", der mecht jetzt aans bekunden:
A erwachsner Mann, der wünscht si aans so sehr:

Chorus


Chorus

There’s a little chapel in the wildwood
Almost hidden behind firs and pines
It was there in the days of my childhood
When I first met this true love of mine

We were kids and she picked the wildwood flowers
While I had to tend my father’s sheep
And the sweetness of this wildwood hours
Is a memory I always want to keep

Chorus

Years went by and the wildwood powers
Made a hot-blooded grown up man of me
And amidst all the wildwood flowers
She was a hot-blooded woman to me
