Text:
“Das war der Graf von Rüdesheim — An Gütern reich beglückt — Der hat des Winzers holder Maid — Zu tief in’s Aug’ geblickt. Doch als er ihr die Lieb gestand — Lacht sie ihm in’s Gesicht. Der Graf ritt tief betrübt nach Haus — Und mied des Tages Licht — Und er sass und vergass in seiner Burg am Rhein — Seinen Schmerz, denn sein Herz tröstet Rüdesheimer Wein.”
(There was the Count of Rüdesheim who was rich in possessions. He looked too deeply into the eyes of the vintner’s beautiful daughter, but when he confessed his love to her, she laughed in his face. The Count rode home deeply saddened and avoided all daylight, and he sat there in his castle on the Rhine and forgot his pain because his heart was consoled by Rüdesheim wine.)
