I spend a lot of time finding song words for people, but this one has me beaten! The person concerned used to sing it at school, but this is all she can remember of it. It's obviously about Exmoor. Does anyone recognise it?

"Then I would be in the West Country,
Where Somerset and Devon meet,
With one I love to live and die
By boundless moorland looming high,
'Neath storm and shine of fitful sky,
And the Severn Sea at our feet."

If anyone can help, I'd be most grateful, not least because it so echoes my own feelings about the area.
