    I have been trying to find a recording or lyrics of a song my late father sang, I think it was called ‘Swiss love Song’. It was probably not Swiss at all, more likely to have been recorded by some country singer around the 1950’s and come from the period of interest in Yodelling around then. We had a 78 recording, I don’t know who the singer was and it’s long lost.
    Some lyrics – as I remember them – ‘I had a sweet girl, the pride of my heart, we’d meet in the morning and trust we’d ne’er part, I’d let her know dearly my love was so true and the mountains ring sweetly this song, Yodel e o etc…

    Question: I am Swedish and live in America. When we were kids we often listened to Swedish Music both hymns and folk songs. There was a folk song that stuck in my head. I do not remember the lyrics just some of the chorus. My spelling is off but it sounded like:

    Kivivivivivit kivivivivit, etc. Do you recognize that?
