Swedish folk songs

Postby hajoseszter » 2020-11-09, 22:38

Hi, I'm searching for the lyrics of one folk song sung by Sågskära, here:
https://soundcloud.com/sagskara/klar-so ... -varit-den

I've already known the song "Var har du varit" - I would like to have "Klar sol."
With other text versions and by ear I could figure out most of it (any corrections would be welcomed) - could you check and complete this?

► Show Spoiler

Also an English translation would be fine.

Would you know any longer version of the song? I would be happy to sing this melody with more verses - I hope there are any.
Thank you!

Eszter

If you type "Klar sol" into youtube, you find this:

Took me less than a minute ;)

Sorry, I meant I would like to have the lyrics-translation of that version I've posted (I've searched for it for days and still could not find) - and I want to have a longer version with that text (if exist).
I could not hear "Herran böd" in this - but what instead? (I miss only a few words, I suppose).

The lyrics for the version in the Soundcloud link:

Klar sol uppå blåa himmelen lyser
Månen tittar så trind och klar
Kalla vattnet som Herran gav
I friska källan det fryser


My attempt at a translation:

Bright sun in the blue sky shines
The moon watching so round and clear
The cold water that the Lord gave
In the fresh spring it freezes
Spruttjna e dom förút å värre bir dom.

- svenska (nolupplänska), English, español, русский.

Thank you very much! <3
