Also known as Greensleeves or Green Sleeves; called that fairly early on as Shakespeare's 'The Merry Wives of Windsor' (1597) has a reference to the song by that name.
Registered at The Stationer's Hall (England) in 1580. Despite arguments to the contrary, there is no proof that Henry VIII was the songwriter. Sources credit John Dowland (1562-1626) with the ballad version familiar to most of us.
