Oyfn Veg

A beautiful rendition ( by Moshe Leiser, Ami Flammer, and Gerard Barreaux, taken from Tendresse et Rage - Chansons Yiddish, one of the first CDs that I bought more than 30 years ago; I heard several of the album's songs on the radio, which was my first introduction to one of my absolutely favorite musical genres ) of this classic song, which was written by Itzik Manger. For a translation and a very nice animation based on the song ( plus another well performed version of the song ) click here.
