GUEST,Dave MacKenzie Lyr Req: Und was bekam des Soldaten Weib? (Brecht (27) RE: Lyr Req: Und Was Bekam des Soldaten Weib 10 Aug 08


I think that what confirms Brecht's intentions in this song, is that the last gift is a widow's veil.

I'm not so sure about the "Ballade vom Weib und dem Soldaten", which John Willett transaltes as "The Song of the Girl and the Soldier", as the "girl" goes on to tell the soldier not to ignore the advice of those older than him.
