Hello!

Many years ago I dated a Swedish man that really loved his folk songs. One of my favorites was a song about a raven and a soldier, but I can't for the life of me remember the name.

I called it "the korparna song" when I was speaking of it to him. I hardly remember any lyrics, but the very first part was "när jag allena...va på måst gå...." The first part I'm sure on the words, the second part is just a vague phonetic remembering. They also say korparna, of course, and the word "vände" at the end of one of the verses.

I also seem to remember him saying the song wasn't originally Swedish, but translated through several languages before it reached Swedish.

If anyone knows what this is, I would be ETERNALLY grateful.

I have tried to find that song, it is not easy. Never heard about it myself and checked with friends and searched on the net and nothing.

If you have any clue about an artist or group name it would be much more easy.

Sincerely
Roberth
