Subject: RE: Lyr/Chords Add: Dodi Li (Hebrew song)
Surprised to see that this song is not in the DT. Anyway, there's a third verse. Don't ask me about chords - not my department.
Meaning: Awaken, North wind, and come, South wind.
See, e.g., http://www.hebrewsongs.com/song-dodili.htm
The music is attributed to Nira Chen. There is a dance that goes with it. The lyrics are taken from The Song of Songs.
I know of two other musical settings of Dodi Li, using different bits and pieces of the lyrics. One of them was recorded by Peter, Paul and Mary, I think in the 1990s.
