For much of its history , Latvia has been a country occupied by a foreignpower. Kas tie tadi is a poignant song of the people which reflects their feeling of being orphaned in their own land.

I am indebted to Dennis Mickiewicz for introducing me to Kas tie tadi and for the harmonic outline of the first two verses.

Kas tie tadi kas dziedaja,
Bez saulites vakara?
Tie ir visi bara berni
Bargu kungu klausitaj.
Who are they who weep at sunset?
They are orphans, subject to a cruel

Kurin ugun silda gaisu
Slauka gauzas asaras,
Krimta cietu pelavmaizi
Avotina mercedam.
So dry the tear, dip the crust of
bread and huddle closer to the fire.

Saulit lasa uziekdama
Zelta rasas lasites:
Ta nebija zelta rasa,
Tas barinu asarin's.
The little sun gathers rising golden
dewdrops. That was not golden
dew: those were little orphan's tears
