    I heard a may day song today about Thomas Morton and the first maypole in the new world (1628). I remember liking it, but I can't find it by searching for lyrics. I think I remember the chorus:
    I'll tarry no longer, to Merrymount I shall go
    I'll drink where I want to, and dance around the pole
    Wild women will attend me, in the company of friends
    Tell them old Tommy Morton's come to Merrymount again.
