THE RED ROSE TOP
(Traditional)

I'll cut off the red rose top
And plant the willow green, green
In all this world the you may see
It's slighted I have been, been

Oh, when your thyme is pulled and gone
They care no more for you, you
There's not a place your thyme goes waste
But it spreads all over with rue, rue
It spreads all over with rue

John Meredith collected this from Sally Sloane who learned it from her grandmother. It is derived from the English song, 'The seeds of love'.
