Song 10: Zu Strassburg auf der Schantz (On the Strassburg ramparts)
On the Strassburg ramparts – that’s where my trouble began. I heard the alphorn calling from the mountains across the river, and I made to swim across the river to my homeland. I was caught and brought before the Captain of my regiment. I will beg for pardon, but I know I’ll get what I deserve. Brothers, you see for the last time, but it’s not my fault! Blame the shepherd boy! His alphorn did this to me! That’s my excuse.
