Early one morning

traditional English
author of text

Early one morning is widely dispersed and was to become especially popular in schools but its first publication is considered to be in William Chappell’s National English Airs (1840), the editor believing that the tune bore some relationship to ‘a hornpipe that was formerly played at the theatres’.
