Subject: Origins: Oj, dortn, dortn
I have been listening to this song a lot recently and the only information I have about it is that it is popular in Jewish circles. It is in Yiddish, but the words are so close to German, that they sound rather like an East European dialect. It is a love song with a beautiful melody. I want to learn it and perform it. I have the words and music and everything, but I would like to know a little more about the song, its author and its history if anyone could enlighten me.
