gnomad req: That's George I Hear-He swings his big hammer (14) ADD: Der Schmied (Ludwig Uhland) 25 Feb 13

Google offers the following

Ludwig Uhland, 1809 - Der Schmied

(Ludwig Uhland, 1809)

Ich hör' meinen Schatz,
Den Hammer er schwinget,
Das rauschet, das klinget,
Das dringt in die Weite,
Wie Glockengeläute,
Durch Gassen und Platz.

Am schwarzen Kamin,
Da sitzet mein Lieber,
Doch geh' ich vorüber,
Die Bälge dann sausen,
Die Flammen aufbrausen
Und lodern um ihn.

Johannes Brahms apparently gave it a tune in 1859

Looks to be just the two verses. I remember the first verses as above, and about as much of the second as we have so far. I'll give it a bit of thought, but it's been half a century and I recently realised I can barely recall something from only 4 years ago, so no promises.
