Sandy Paton Lyr Add: Walking on the Green Grass (22) RE: Lyr Add: Walking on the Green Grass 26 Apr 05

I remember a recorded version of this song -- I believe it was a Stinson recording of the Mechau Family, who were from Colorado, I think -- that used the first verse of the text that began this thread (thanks, Gargoyle) and continued with a couple of others. One, I recall, went:

    She shall have a young man,
    She shall have a lover.
    And if that young man chance to die,
    She shall have another.

Which is pretty matter of fact, eh? Another was something like:

    We shall go a-roving,
    Roving o'er the land.
    (Something, something) pretty girl,
    Take her by the hand.

Anyone have this text in memory or songbook? I'd like to get it back into my head.
