> There have been a number of discussions over the past year covering
> various aspects of our ancestors' life in the old country. They have
> covered the topics of food, occupations, sayings, games, customs,naming
> traditions, etc. The responses from list members have been interesting,
> informative and educational and all have brought back memories from my
> younger years. One topic that hasn't been discussed is that of
> traditional folk songs. The Lutheran Church of old was referred to as
> the singing church. No doubt this came about because members had a
> love for singing in their everyday lives and carried it into their
> worship activities. I don't know if there are any folk songs that are
> unique to the Germans in Poland/Vohynia/Russia but I recall from my
> youth that at house parties and other social gatherings that inevitably
> singing would break out and carry on for some time. I can remember bits
> and pieces of several songs and would like to have the complete lyrics.
> Does anyone know if there is a source for German folk songs. Has anyone
> compiled a collection of these songs?
> I would like to find the lyrics for a few songs that I remember - Schon
> ist Die Jugend; Du, Du, Liegt Mir in Herzen; Ach Du Lieber Augustine;
> Trink, Trink, Bruderllein Trink.
