C B7 to cast me off so discourteously,
Em Dfor i have loved you so long,
C B7 Emdelighting in your company.
G Dgreensleeves was all my joy,
C B7greensleeves was my delight,
G Dgreensleeves was my heart of gold,
C B7 Emand who but my lady greensleeves.
Thy gown was of the grassy green,
They sleeves of satin hanging by,
Which made thee be our harvest queen,
And yet thou wouldst not love me.
Well, i will pray to God on high,
That thou constancy mayst see,
And that yet once before i die,
Thou will vouchsafe to love me.
