Polish folk song title?

Hi all. This is a recording me playing a Polish folk song on a shakuhachi. The only title for it I have is in Japanese ("Let's Go to the Woods, Little Girl" (!)), but I would like to find more recordings of it. Can anybody identify this song? Thanks!

I think it's "Szła dzieweczka do Laseczka" ( random youtube ). My Polish is terrible but I believe it translates to something like "a young lady goes to the woods".

Excellent, thank you!

All I had was the shakuhachi notation, so it's hard to tell if I was getting the feel of the piece.

(And boy am I glad it's "A young lady goes to the woods," and not "Let's go to the woods, young lady.")

This is a recording of Polish folk ensemble "Śląsk" performing this song during a concert.

Don't worry, the young lady meets a "very fine hunter" in the third line of the song's first stanza.
