Song Lyrics and Excerpts 

A ŠTO TI JE MILA KĆERI

NAVALI SE ŠAR PLANINA

ZASPALO JE SIROČE

SNOŠTI GO VIDOV

ROSNA LIVADA

GUSTA MI MAGLA PADNALA

OJ, OVČARČE

GUGUTKA

KRAJ POTOKA BISTRE VODE

MAJKO IGLA I BIĆVICA

SAGRADIĆU ŠAJKU

MOME STOE

SEDNA BABA DA VEČERA

STOJANE SINE

KRAJ POTOKA BISTRE VODE

Kraj potoka , bistre vode, šuma zelena
nevesela, zabrinuta, sjedi djevojka.

Potok teče i protiče, tiho žubori,
a djevojka, zabrinuta, kroz plač govori.

Vrati mi se mlad junače, dragi mladjani,
da na tvojim, grud'ma umrem,
grud'ma vatrenim.

Description
"By a Creek of Clear Water"
This is a well-known song from Bosnia and Herzegovina that belongs to the celebrated "sevdah" style that dates back to the times of Ottoman occupation (14th-19th centuries). It is a lament by a young woman whose lover (probably a renegade warrior) has left and she is worried that he may not come back. She would rather die than not see him again...
