Thread Name: Lyr Req: Spider's Web (Girl Scout song)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Help! a Girl Scout folk song?
Regarding the Rose song,
I have a song book with the latest date of 1947 in it, that has Rose:

Rose, rose, rose, rose, shall I ever see thee red?
Aye, marry, that thou wilt, If thou but stay.

It is true, that Elizabeth of York who was of the white rose (House of York's), and Henry VII (father of Henry VIII), of the red rose (House of Lancaster).
