Greensleeves


A- Amlas, my love, you Gdo me wrong toFcast me of dis-E7courteously;
andAmI have lovedGyou so long, de-FlightningE7in yourAmcompany.
CGreensleeves wasGall my joy, AmGreensleeves wasE7my delight,
CGreensleeves was myGheart of gold, andAmwho but myE7ladyAmGreensleeves?

 

1. Alas, my love, you do me wrong
to cast me of discourteously;
and I have loved you so long,
delightning in your company.
Greensleeves was all my joy,
Greensleeves was my delight,
Greensleeves was my heart of gold,
and who but my lady Greensleeves?

2. If you intend thus to disdain,
it does the more enrapture me,
and even so, I still remain
a lover in captivity.
Greensleeves was all my joy,
Greensleeves was my delight,
Greensleeves was my heart of gold,
and who but you has Greensleeves?

3. I have been ready at your hand
to grant whatever you would crave,
I have both waged life and land,
your love and good will for to have.
Greensleeves was all my joy,
Greensleeves was my delight,
Greensleeves was my heart of gold,
and who but you has Greensleeves?

4. Alas, my love, that you should own
a heart of wanton vanity,
so must I meditate alone
upon your insincerety.
Greensleeves was all my joy,
Greensleeves was my delight,
Greensleeves was my heart of gold,
and who but you has Greensleeves?

5. Greensleeves, now farewell, adieu,
to God I pray to prosper thee,
for I am still your lover true,
come once again and love me!
Greensleeves was all my joy,
Greensleeves was my delight,
Greensleeves was my heart of gold,
and who but you has Greensleeves?
