Collected by Bob Copper in about 1954, from Steve Goodall, of Basingstoke, Hants: see Chapter Sixteen, pp. 135-140, of Songs and Southern Breezes for the details; and the appendix for these words.
One morning in the month of May
So slowly then she walked along
He turned his face unto the wall
And then he died all on that day
He was buried down in the old churchyard
They grew and grew to the high church tower
[Bob Copper's note]: I had to help Steve slightly with some of the words so this is a somewhat hybrid version.
