Hej Sokoły is a traditional Polish song that was popular among soldiers during the Polish-Soviet War. The title translates roughly as "Hey Falcons." It is sung by Maryla Rodowicz and we're showing some photos of beautiful Poland. There are so many beautiful folk songs in various countries. Wish I can get hold of all beautiful ones like this one so the whole world can enjoy them.

The lyrics exist in several versions about a Ukrainian girl to whom her betrothed, either a cossack or an ulan says goodbye for the last time.

Although its exact origins are unknown, the song was believed to have been written by the Polish-Ukrainian poet-songwriter Tomasz Padura in the first half of the 19th century. It is representative of what is known as the Ukrainian school of Polish literature. The song also became popular in Ukraine, with a slightly different text in Ukrainian. Polish folk singer Maryla Rodowicz performed a popular cover of the song.
