A. 075. The Loved One’s Release


Translated by Ed Bernthal

The young nobleman rode back and forth
In the meadow of the Dresden people
In the streets of the Kings’s people.

Noblemen met him
Removed their hats before him
Removed their hats before him.

‘Don’t remove your hats before me
I am just a poor farmer’s son
I am just a poor farmer’s son.’

“If you are a poor farmer’s son
You should not go about in a fancy coat
You should not go about in a fancy coat.”

“You should never carry the shiny sword
You should not wear the gold-laced hat
You should not wear the gold-laced hat.”

They soon caught the youth
Put him in the tower
Into the Dresden prison.

They young nobleman wrote home to his father
Father, sell the black horses for me
To release me from the Dresden prison.

If you, my son, were of any good to me
You would not be in the Dresden prison
You would not be in the Dresden prison.

The young nobleman wrote home to his mother
Mother, sell two cows for me
To release me from the Dresden prison.

If you, my son, were of any good to me
You would not be in the Dresden prison
You would not be in the Dresden prison.

The young nobleman wrote home to his sister
Sister, sell my fancy coat
To release me from the Dresden prison.

If you, my brother, were of any good to me
You would not be in the Dresden prison
You would not be in the Dresden prison.

The young nobleman wrote home to his loved one
Loved one, sell the silver ring
To release me from the Dresden prison.

His loved one hurried to get to Dresden
Released him from the Dresden prison
Released him from the Dresden prison.

Released him with silver and gold
With diamonds and jewels
With diamonds and jewels.

Now gird yourself with the shiny sword
Put on your fancy coat
Ride into the Dresden meadow.
