I came across this thread while on a spam-clearing expedition. I found only two recordings of "Rose in June" - on June Tabor's Rosa Mundi, and on Dave Webber & Anni Fentiman's Bonnet & Shawl. Is there a Louis Killen recording, or any others?
Here's the Traditional Ballad Index entry on the Copper Family song titled "Rose in June":
Rose in JuneDESCRIPTION: "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 are red, the violets blue." "O love, I will carry the sweet milking pail."
EARLIEST DATE: 1973
KEYWORDS: love courting flowers lyric
FOUND IN: Britain(England(South))
