A folk song

Post by Annis »

Ok, I dont know if it's historical, but I've got this folk song in my head (i thought someone might be able to help) and I want to know what its called, and I dont know the lyrics.

This is all I have of it (be it right or wrong):

Way hola way
(line goes here)
Way hola way
And all the way home


Thanks

The music teacher who runs the small folky group at college started singing it and it got stuck in my head (that was a few weeks ago) and ive only just round to REALLY wanting to know what it was because I've heard it before.
