My mother said, "Please son don't go
Don't leave me all 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 an' a home so dear
And i took that girl to be my wife.

Her hair was dark and curly too
Her loving eyes were blue
Her cheeks were like a red red rose
The girl i loved from the greenbriar shore.

The years rolled on an' the months rolled by
She left me all alone
Now i remember what my mother said
"Never trust a girl on 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 green briar shore."
