​Under The Greenwood Tree

This song is by Amazing Blondel and appears on the album Evensong (1969).


Dawn draws near and you rise wearily
From my bed in search of your own
As you go my thoughts turn drearily
To the empty hours I shall spend alone
If you love me come discreetly
Down to meet me under the greenwood tree
Thrushes sing
The breeze wanders aimlessly
Through the weeping willows and the oak
Memories of the nights we've spent shamelessly
Locked in love as cattle to their yoke
Middle 8
Till Doomsday we'll meet this way
Cursed am I to court such a lover
Who is not betrothed to me
For her dowry lies with another
And no sadder wife will there be
