delighting in your companay

to grant whatever you would crave
  Am        C       G        Em

      Am      E7        Am (2)
your love and good will for to have.
    Am       C      G      Em
Thy gown was of the grassy green,
     Am (2)          E7 (2)
thy sleeves of satin hanging by,
      Am        C      G       Em
Which made thee be our harvest queen,
    Am       E7      Am (2)
And yet thou wouldst not love me.
Am     C       G      Em
I will pray to God on high,
     Am (2)         E7 (2)
That thou constancy mayst see,
    Am       C      G      Em
And that yet once before I die,
     Am        E7      Am (2)
Thou wilt vouchsafe to love me.
Last Chorus:
C (2)             G      Em
Greensleeves, farewell, adieu
Am (2)        E7 (2) 
God I pray to prosper thee
    C (2)          G     Em
For I am still thy lover true
      Am    E7       Am (2)
come once again and love me
