Hi out there...

A friend gave me a mixed tape with a song from a swedish group called Plommon. The song is called "Emma" and i can´t find the lyrics anywhere in the net. Maybe someone can help me ?!?

EMMA

Säg minns du den gången,
den månskenskvällen,
då vi dansade helt allen.

Då du svor och du lova
och heligt bedyra
att alltid, alltid va min.

"Å Emma, Emma
å Emma, Emma
du svor att alltid va min."




Tell me, do you remember that one time
The moonlit night
when we danced completely alone

You swore and promised
and took an oath
to always,always be mine

Oh Emma, Emma
Oh Emma, Emma
you promised to always be mine

You can hear Emma's Waltz here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_zBhMslWV0

TheSession.org has various forms (ABC, sheet music) under the name John Murphy's Swedish.

It's a lovely piece. It also looks great for beginners, because it has few big jumps in it.

Thanks.

Here, the Lyrics of Emma in Finnish

Emma
tune trad
lyrics Evert Suonio

Oi muistatkos Emma sen kuutamoillan
kun yhdessä tansseista kuljettiin
sinä sanasi annoit ja valasi vannoit
ja lupasit olla mun omani
Oi Emma Emma oi Emma Emma ja lupasit olla mun omani


Sinä kuiskasit mulle että painapas pääsi
vasten mun palavaa rintaani
sinä omistit minut minä omistin sinut
ja me tahdoimme lempiä alati
oi...

Sinä estelit minua epäilemästä
et tahtonut minulle petosta
ja puhtahan lempes ja viattoman rakkautes
lupasit minulle uhrata
oi ...

Minä uskoin ja vannoin ja sormuksen annoin
ja lupasin olla sun omasi
sinä valasi taitoit ja lahjastani laitoit
vain heiluvat renkahat korviisi
oi...

Oh do you remember, Emma, that moonlight night
when together we were returning from the dance
you gave your word and took your oath
and promised to be my own
oh Emma emma oh Emma Emma and promised to be my own

You whispered to me press your head
against my burning breast
you owned me and I owned you
and we wanted to love forever
oh Emma...

You prevented me from being suspicious
you didn't want me to be betrayed
and your pure devotion and innocent love
you promised to offer to me
oh Emma...

I believed and I vowed and I gave a ring
and promised to be your own
you broke your oath and had my present turned
into swinging ear rings
oh Emma...
---

Emma (sung by Ture Ara klik) was the first "hit record" (1929) in Finland.
It also is the first tune that I (and many others I believe) learned to play on mandolin. But what really struck me a couple of years later was this.

enjoy
AKS
