Thread Name: Lyr Req: The Twenty-First of May
Subject: The twenty-first of May
Hi, there,

Can anyone help me with a lead to a song with the line: "'Twas a fine summer's day, the twenty-first of May"

Reason for my search:-

An elderly (in his 89th year) relation died a few years ago and I am responsible for his funeral arrangements. In one of our last conversations, I asked his date of birth. The reply was that I could always remember it from the old Wiltshire folk song with the above line. I'd like to have it played at his funeral -- might enliven an otherwise morbid occasion!

Many thanks for any help.
