Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Green Grow the Rushes - pagan version
Here is a Gloucestershire version. I sang this the other night and someone asked me what the symbolism in it was. He seemed a little disappointed when I told him that apart from verses 4, 10 and 12, the song is garbled nonesense. Moral - don't look for symbolism when it's not there!
