ROSE IN JUNE (2)

Was down in the valleys, the valleys so deep,
To pick some plain roses to keep my love sweet.
So let it come early, late or soon,
I will enjoy my rose in June.

O, the roses red, the violets blue,
Carnations sweet, love and so are you,
So let it come early, late or soon,
I will enjoy my rose in June.

O love, I will carry thy sweet milking pail,
O love, I will kiss you on every stile
So let it come early, late or soon,
I will enjoy my rose in June.


Versions have been sung by Cyril Tawney and (I think) by Bob Arnold
(who played Tom Forrest in "The Archers. The tune is a pretty waltz.
That version appeared in Bob Copper's Songs and Southern Breezes
