I to remember this melody from grammar school. I thought it was an English translation of a Native American song. The only line I remember was " Above the plain of golden green a young boy's head in plainly seen; A Who ya who ya who ya ya swiftly flowing river. One of my daughters teachers in her school sings this song all the time. I am going to talk with her and see what she knows. I'll post again if I learn anything new.
