Thread Name: Folklore: Songs to do with May Day
Subject: RE: Folklore: Songs to do with May Day
There are lots of versions of the May Day Song as many villages in the midlands had their own version.
It usually starts
I've been a rambling most of the night and the best part of the day,
And now I am returning back again, I have brought you a branch of may.

The Pleasant Month of May

Then to the maypole haste away.
