Freemason's Song (II)

DESCRIPTION: Freemasonry began in the garden where Adam's fig leaf was his mason's apron. King David and Noah were freemasons. "Now come over the mountain you maidens all, bring a square and rule along" because a freemason "will secure you on a cold winter's night"

NOTES [34 words]: This and the "Free Mason Song" are very similar, recounting Biblical events and connecting them to masonry. Roud lumps them. As there are no exact parallels, we split them -- but it's a close thing. - RBW
