GREENSLEEVES new lyrics 

by Joel Sattler 
[based on the life of Anne Boleyn] 
 
High in the sky the white falcon flies 
far above old England where she was birthed 
she's spread her wings for 500 years 
but has never returned to the earth 
 
There was a lass in a verdant dress 
and a smile with meaning no one could guess 
and princes came from a 1000 miles 
just to tell of the love they confessed 
 
Greensleeves they all called her name 
she was never one for their foolish games 
Greensleeves she was pure of soul 
like a flower that never grows old
 
The noble ladies of Henry's Court 
were filled with envy and jealousy 
to see a youngster enthrall the lords 
with her careless and innocent beauty 
 
Her gown the color of leaves of oak 
and the cloth the purest of velvet green 
her eyes a mystery all their own 
her equal no one'd ever seen  
 
Greensleeves they all called her name 
she was never one for their foolish games 
Greensleeves she was pure of soul 
like a flower that never grows old
 
one day King Henry took note of her 
and said who’s that girl in the green green dress 
said they that’s Anne of the Boleyn clan 
a beauty no man has possessed
 
But Henry’s heart got the best of him 
and he could not get her out of his mind 
the counselors tried to make him relent 
but in matters of love he was blind 
 
Greensleeves he dreamed through night 
and all through the day and all through his life 
he knew she should be his own 
and so he asked her to be wife 
 
she bore a daughter Elizabeth 
who was destined to be England's greatest queen 
but had no son to become his heir 
and the consequences unforeseen  
 
Anne was condemned and she lost her head 
so that Henry could his Jane safely wed 
and Anne became just a memory 
and a legend that was never dead 
 
Greensleeves they all called her name 
she was never one for their foolish games 
Greensleeves she was pure of soul 
like a flower that never grows old 
 
they claimed her ghost haunted London Tower 
or Hever Castle or Marwell Hall  
but true her spirit has wondrous power 
and still she will watch over all 
 
High in the sky the white falcon flies 
far above old England where she was birthed 
she's spread her wings for 500 years 
but has never returned to the earth
