@wlonk I think you might be my main hope here.
I'm trying to remember a folk song where she's walking along the river singing a song, and she meets a soldier who's whistling the same tune, and they have a fun little fling together.
The version I'm trying to find has the phrase "I knew we would be lovers" in it, but google's giving me zippo.
CAN YOU HELP
@Sandra @wlonk @JoshuaACNewman Ooh, I also REALLY love the one where they're making out, and to tease her he says "hey, you kiss almost as good as my other girlfriend," and there is no other girlfriend, but she doesn't know this, so she stabs him to death and throws his body in the well.
And from then on, all the birds that sing, only sing his name.
@lumpley Not what you were looking for, but I think you'll appreciate Little Yellow Roses anyway: https://mainlynorfolk.info/folk/songs/littleyellowroses.html
