Broadside ballad entitled 'The Banks of Sweet Primroses'
The Banks of sweet Primroses.
As I walked out one midsummer's morning,
Three long steps I took up to her,
I'said, fair maid, where are you going,
Stand off, stand off you are deceitful,
I'll go a own to some lonesome valley,
Come all you maidens that go a courting,
Probable period of publication:
1840-1860 shelfmark: L.C.Fol.70(141c)
