ROSE IN JUNE. or Love in June.
(Via Bob Copper & Alfred Williams)
I’ll harness my horses & follow the plough
While darling Miss Catherine is milking her cow.

So let it come early late or soon
I will enjoy my love in June.

Oh love I will carry thy sweet milking pail
Oh love I will kiss you at every stile.

Oh the roses are red & the violets are blue
Carnations are sweet love & so are you.

‘Twas Down in the valley, the valley so sweet
I will pick some plain roses to keep my love sweet.

Oh I’ll go and cut down that old myrtle tree
And build up a bower for my Catherine and me.

Tim Radford (I recorded on my CD - Home From Home)
