    I know this is an old post, but I joined the site specifically to answer your question, I had also been searching for the song for a number of years. I have finally found two references to the song which seems to date back to 1951, and can actually give you a link to one version on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1UIDkWOwO8 I had only ever remembered the first two lines, 'It was down by the Rhine I met Rosaline, her hair was so fair and her eyes did shine'. I was 4 years old when I first...and last heard it! I was born in Gloucester and my dad had one of those case style record players, and he collected the old 78's, this song was one of them. Both versions that I found are sung by a male but I have not heard the other version..I can't seem to find it. However the version on you tube is not the one I remember. I don't know if it was also done by a female singer, but can find no other references to it. It would be interesting to know if you have found out any more about the song yourself, over the years. One version is by Billy Cotton and the youtube version is by Teddy Johnson
