"Girl from the North Country" as written by and Bob Dylan....
Well, if you're travelin' in the north country fair,
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.

Well, if you go when the snowflakes storm,
When the rivers freeze and summer ends,
Please see if she's wearing a coat so warm,
To keep her from the howlin' winds.

Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
If it rolls and flows all down her breast.
Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
That's the way I remember her best.

I'm a-wonderin' if she remembers me at all.
Many times I've often prayed
In the darkness of my night,
In the brightness of my day.

So if you're travelin' in the north country fair,
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.

    General CommentThe line "Remember me to one who lives there, she once was a true love of mine" was also used in the song Scarborough Fair, arranged by British songwriter Martin Carthy, who was Bob Dylan’s friend. Scarborough Fair, made famous by Simon and Garfunkel, is a traditional English ballad, arranged in this case by Paul Simon who also heard it from Carthy. The original ballad had different lyrics so of course each time it was arranged by another songwriter, the ballad presented different perspectives.
