Thread Name: Lyr Req: 'Banks of the Ohio' in Yiddish
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: 'Banks of the Ohio' in Yiddish
This makes a welcome change from Jingle Bells and Amazing Grace in Gaelic (You wouldn't be wanting Christmas carols and hymns in Yiddish??). So here's a serious request; the translation of MAYN RUE PLATS (sung by June Tabor) is in the DT; can someone supply the original Yiddish poem written by Morris Rosenfeld?
