Thread Name: Origins: One I Love (Jean Ritchie)
Subject: RE: One I Love
Even though it's just by way of the Internet,it's an honor to know Jean Ritchie, the composer of this song.

When the title of this thread, these words popped into my mind:

One I love two I love
mama dear and papa
Three I love me I love
and four my little brother.


I have no idea how I learned that verse. But it has a tune that goes to it so I can know it wasn't from a book (since I can't read or write music).

Is that verse a variant of this same Jean Ritchie song?
