Å jenta å ja AKA - "Harry's Hambo, "Jenta Och Ja." Norwegian, Air (3/4 time). D Major (Nowlan & Williams). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The title means "My girl and me." This is a Norwegian folk song, the words to which appear in a 1901 collection of folk songs and ballads. The melody is used for the Swedish hambo or Norwegian pols dance.
