Neiden (J. McCarthy) As I leave behind Neidin It's like purple splashed on green. My soul is strangely lead Through the winding hills ahead. And she plays a melody On winds and streams for me. cho: Won't you remember, won't you remember, Won't you remember me? And we wind and climb and fall Like the greatest waltz of all, Float across the floor Her sweet breath outside the door. And it's time that I was gone Cross the silver tear. As I leave behind Neidin In the hall where we have been, Rhododendrons in her hair, In the mountain scented air I still fellher spirit song Cross the silver tear.
