Swedish Folk Song – I Riden Så


Oh Silibrand rode up to the top of the mound, All under the lime tree so green. There he got to see his daughter going in the grove. You ride so carefully through the grove with her. Oh woe is me, woe is me, what do I see. All under the lime tree so green. I see my daughter, she’s coming to me. You ride so carefully through the grove with her. Oh, Silibrand spreads out his cape so blue, All under the lime tree so green. There she gave birth to twin sons. You ride so carefully through the grove with her. To my father I will give my grey steed, All under the lime tree so green. Which he will ride to the church upon. You ride so carefully through the grove with her. To my sister I will give my seven gold rings, All under the lime tree so green. That I haven’t worn since I was a bride. You ride so carefully through the grove with her. To my brother I will give my small gloves, All under the lime tree so green. That he will carry with him wherever he goes. You ride so carefully through the grove with her. One child they took to Freya’s christening, All under the lime tree so green. The other one they took to the hall of Valhalla. You ride so carefully through the grove with her.

    It makes me sad and pine for a land that was never mine and one I was not born in. It reaches deep,friends
