Put Vejini is the story of an independent young man whose promise of a bride has been withdrawn and he longs for his boat to be driven back to Kurzeme, West Latvia. Written in F Major, the song reflects the lilting rhythm of the water in the bass line as the melody moves back and forth between the soprano, alto and tenor lines.
