Has anyone come across this one. My son-in-law's grandfather, in his 90s and from Lincolnshire, recited these words (no tune):

As I went a –walking one morning in May
A fair pretty maiden came tripping my way
Her cheeks red as roses, she cheerfully did sing
With a little white handkerchief tied under her chin.

Now to kiss those sweet lips I was going to begin
But she says 'Nay, nay, you must first your gold ring
To the little white handkerchief tied under her chin.'

Can anyone identify the song?

Thanks

Tradsinger

I have just found out that this is a version of 'Bonny Blue Handkerchief', but with a colour change!
