“Muss i denn
Muss i denn
Zum Städtele naus”

These are some of the verses from a traditional German Swabian folk song made famous by Elvis Presley in 1960 as “Wooden Heart.”

"Muss i denn" is about a soldier having to leave the woman he loves and vowing to remain faithful until he is back to marry her. The origin is unknown, but was first recorded in 1827. The song became famous beginning in the mid-19th century. It soon was especially well-liked among the German military as well as among excursion groups and thus was early on considered a patriotic song. It also became popular among German merchant seamen as a capstan shanty, and has been played as a Naval quick march since the days of the Kaiserliche Marine. An early English translation titled "Must I, then? Must I, then? From the town must I, then?" was made by Henry William Dulcken in 1856.

0.5 liter size (hand-scribed into the side). 4-7/8” high with 3-3/4” base.

Small chip in the base, so priced accordingly.

Great souvenir for you or as a farewell gift!
