Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Juniper, Gentian, and Rosemary
Joe's 'Gentle Fair Jenny' is a variant of Roud 433, Laws Q6, Master title: 'A Week's Work Well Done'. The Juniper, Gentian and Rosemary, Dew flies over the mulberry tree' is one of those refrain sequences that has migrated from one ballad to another Child 1, Child 2 and the one above, and a glance through Bronson would probably find other ballads that use it.
