Rain water - There's something about the country | 03-Mar-11

Enquirer would like to know who wrote the following:

There's something in the country you rarely get in town,
Water for washing in, soft and clear and brown
Gathered in a rain barrel under country eves
Smelling sweet of open air, elder flowers and leaves (or breeze)

The rain drops in the city fall into soot and smoke
And no one wants to use the drops but oh the lucky folk
Whose homes are in the country would think it a disgrace
Not to use soft water to wash a country face

Yes... it was in our song books in primary school in England during WWII... all the kids used to sing it during 'music' period.
