Heimweh

Language: Swiss German (Schwizerdütsch)

Es goht mer ruch bi frömde Lüte,
Und ihre Sinn ist hert we Stei,
Und jetz, wo d' Obeglogge lüte  -- 
Jetz gäll, arms Härz, jetz wämmer hei? 

Jetz brönnt's erst Liecht deheim im Dörfli
Und's Müeterlei sitzt ganz alei
Und dänkt a me, wenn d' Bärge dunkle  -- 
Jetz chumm, liebs Härz, jetz gömmer hei!


Confirmed with Adolf Frey, Duss und underm Rafe. Füfzg Schwizerliedli, zweite Auflage, Frauenfeld: J. Huber, 1899. Appears in Mutter und Kind, page 20.
