Subject: Lyr Req: Who will draw a ring around the moon?
Help.

My mother used to sing this song as a round with my 4 siblings and me in the early 70s. She would play the tune with guitar. In the southwestern part of Virginia.

Who will draw a ring around the moon?
Who will draw a line from star to star?
Who will sing a penny's worth a tune to tell you how in love we..e are?

next verse:

I will draw a ring around the moon
I will draw a line from star to star
I will sing a penny's worth a tune to tell you how in love we are.

I'd love to know origin of this little diddy. I have no idea if there is more to it than this.
Thanks
ML
