DigiTrad: MAYN RUE PLATS

MAYN RUE PLATS

Don't look for me where leaves are falling
You will not find me there, mayn Schatz
At the machine where lives are withered
Dort is mayn Rue Plats, dort is mayn Rue Plats

Don't look for me where bird are singing
You will not find me there, mayn Schatz
I am slave where chains are ringing
Dort is mayn Rue Plats, dort is mayn Rue Plats

Don't look for me where streams are playin'
You will not find me there, mayn Schatz
Where spririts fail and tears oft plowing
Dort is mayn Rue Plats, dort is mayn Rue Plats

So if indeed you love me truly
Then come to me, mayn lieber Schatz
And lift my heavy heart from sorrow
Make it sweet my resting place
Mach mir siess mayn Rue Plats

Recorded by June Tabor on "Aqaba" (1989)

part of this song is in Yiddish and the spelling might be wrong
as I only know German, but the meaning is:
mayn lieber Schatz = my darling
dort is mayn Rue Plats = There is my resting place
Mach mir siess mayn Rue Plats = Make it sweet my resting place
