My grandparents and parents used to sing this song. I cannot find it anywhere online other than one person who wrote about it on the old 50s forum. Does anyone know it and who created it / where it came from?
“We’ve been out gathering flowers, out in the bright sunshine, Passing away happy hours, with that old sweetheart of mine. Take them from me as a token, I lay them down at your feet.
Don’t let our friendship be broken, accept all these flowers so sweet. There are Roses and Lillie’s, Violets blue, Snowdrops, and Pansies, bright Primroses too, Sweet Williams and Fuchsias, sweetheart for you, in my sweet little basket of flowers.”
