Help with transcribing song lyrics

Postby jahan_pl » 2019-07-15, 15:15

Hello, could you please help me with identifying the song name or transcribe the lyrics you can hear in the short fragment below?

This is most probably a kind of older Iranian song, but it is still played in some radio stations nowadays. The audio was recorded in a taxi in Iran, so it may be difficult to decipher the lyrics, but I hope you will be able to do this. :wink:

This is a famous song called گل زردم "Gol-e Zardom" or ای یار جانی "Ey Yar-e Jani". I don't know who performed the version you recorded, but here are a couple of other renditions:

Thank you so much for providing me the titles! :D I was not aware that this is such an old Persian song. Thanks to you, I could feel once again like just arriving to my favourite city of Esfahan in the above-mentioned taxi. :)

As for the version recorded by me, I managed to find it. It's called 'Didare Yar' and performed by Hussein Bakhtiari:
