"Visa från Utanmyra" (English: Song from Utanmyra) is a traditional Swedish folk song written as a melody to two separate texts. The first text, entitled O tysta ensamhet (translated: Oh Silent Solitude), was written by Olof von Dalin. The second text, entitled Visa från Utanmyra, was written by Björn Lindroth. Lindroth's text is perhaps the best-known version today. Utanmyra is a småort village located in Sollerön, Dalarna, Sweden.
The song has been played in a jazz context and interpreted by several artists, including Arne Domnérus, Monica Zetterlund, Wintergatan and Jan Johansson. Johansson's version was featured on his seminal 1964 album Jazz på svenska.
