Artist: Loreena McKennitt
Albums: The Visit (1991)
Composers: Henry Tudor

Alas my love you do me wrong
To cast me off discourteously
And I have loved you oh so long
Delighting in your company

Greensleeves was my delight
Greensleeves my heart of gold
Greensleeves was my heart of joy
And who but my Lady Greensleeves

I have been ready at your hand
To grant whatever thou would crave
I have waged both life and land
Your love and goodwill for to have

Greensleeves was my delight
Greensleeves was my heart of gold
Greensleeves was my heart of joy
And who but my Lady Greensleeves

Thy petticoat of sendle white
With gold embroidered gorgeously
Thy petticoat of silk and white
And these I bought thee gladly

Greensleeves was my heart of gold
Greensleeves was my heart of joy
Greensleeves was my heart of joy
And who but my Lady Greensleeves
