A. 078. The Truthful Daughter


(From: Brahme)
Translated by Ed Bernthal

On the high hills I wandered
On the high hills I wandered
High on the high hills
High on the high hills.

Down into the valley I looked
Down into the valley I looked
Yes, in the valley so deep
Yes, in the valley so deep.

A little ship I saw sailing there
A little ship I saw sailing there
Three youths were on the ship
Three youths were on the ship.

The nicest one was the middle one
The nicest one was the middle one
And I liked him very much
And I liked him very much.

He took off his ring
He took off his ring
His silver ring
His silver ting.

‘Here have, here have you, maiden
Here have, here have you, maiden
My silver ring
My silver ring.’

“I can not take your ring
I can not take your ring
My mother does not want it
My mother does not want it.”

‘Just tell your mother
Just tell your mother
That you found it
That you found it.’

“I cannot lie to my mother
I cannot lie to my mother
I must tell her the truth
I must tell her the truth.”

“Much rather would I say
Much rather would I say
The youth wants to free me
The youth wants to free me.”
