Description: There are some claims that this song originated in 1689 with Mrs. Fleetwood Habergham's poem "The Seeds Of Love" (a. k. a. "Love's Evil Choice"). It appears the song may have evolved later to influence "The Sprig Of Thyme" and many other similar tunes in the British Isles. Maybe later it landed in North America in its current form but it maintained all of its symbolism to warn of the dangers in taking false lovers. This version is in CGC tuning.
Key: D Dorian
