Greensleeves is attributed to Henry VIII when Anne Boleyn rejected his advances. She finally succumbed, as expected, to the lure of being the queen and finally lost her head.

The same composition with different lyrics was sung beautifully by the famous Debbie Reynolds in the movie'How the West was won'. A movie dedicated to the American West
The movie had three sections with different directors and a multi super cast. It was filmed in a spectrum form with different cameras projected on a giant screen.This section from the movie has Gregory Peck and Debbie. I am posting 2 versions. The changed title of the song is 'In the meadows'. Enjoy.....
