      Hey y'all/yinz.. . :-) Depending on which side of the Mason-Dixon line

      ya are:-)



      My friend in Sumiac and I have been having a conversation about

      "sumiacky spev," or the special singing that comes out of this village.

      Now, I am sure that some of you may know (or might have found) the song

      "Na kralovej holi." Now, we both know the song as this:



      Na Kráľovej holi...

      1. [:Na Kráľovej holi stojí strom zelený.:]

      [:Vrch má naklonený, vrch má naklonený,

      vrch má naklonený ku Sumiackej zemi.:]

      2. [:Odkážte, odpíšte tej mojej materi,:]

      [:že mi svadba stojí, že mi svadba stojí,

      že mi svadba stojí na Kráľovej holi.:]

      3. [:Na nebi hviezdičky sú moje sestričky:]

      [:a rúra z kanóna a rúra z kanóna

      a rúra z kanóna, to je moja žena.:]

      4. [:Odkážte odpíšte mojím kamarátom,:]

      [:že už viac nepôjdem, že už viac nepôjdem,

      že už viac nepôjdem na fraj za dievčaťom.:]

      And the rest of the country knows it like this:

      Na Kráľovej holi...

      1. [:Na Kráľovej holi stojí strom zelený.:]

      [:Vrch má naklonený, vrch má naklonený,

      vrch má naklonený ku Slovenskej zemi.:] etc....

      So, she believes that it started with the movie _Pacho, hybsky zbojnik_

      ( http://www.youtube com/watch? v=-zw1HMZW2CY <http://www.youtube

      com/watch? v=-zw1HMZW2CY& NR=1> &NR=1 ) that Sumiac was replaced with

      Slovakia (Slovensko). Is there any truth to that thought? Or was the

      shift from the village to the national implication actually done

      earlier? For the most part, there are only a few people that would

      intuitively sing the Sumiac version- most people in Slovakia seem to

      know the more "national" version... and makes me think that the movie

      was NOT the first to switch the two- but perhaps school song-books did

      so before. Any thoughts?

      By the way, I put FS Sumiacan singing this song from (I think) the

      1970's in our files. Those deep baritone voices are the color and style

      of that village's singing, and I can't find anything like it anywhere

      else in Slovakia. Enjoy!

      Ben
