See comments for Kurt Franke’s transcript, these two played as a set…

Var det Du eller Var det Jag

I learned it many years ago in Sweden in Am as "Var det du eller var det jag" (was it I or was it you?) and I think there were words to it. Kanske kan de svenska medlemmarna skicka in texten.

Now that’s more like it… Kurt’s version is in A Dorian. So, how about a transcript as you know it LongNote? The Swedish and Finnish waltzes I’ve played have tended to have more to them than this…

Tack ska du ha för texten! Det är länge sen jag hört den sjungas.
