About the song
Unfinished; Music by Robert Jones & the words are likely by William Shakespeare. Now rhythm guide & bass tracks; but the 400 year anniversary of this song is about up & to say it was started here.

These new songs are celebrating their 400th year birthdays.
This year is the 400 year anniversary of the publication of yet another Booke by Robert Jones (who I try to specialize in). I really did miss doing a recording of any of his music for the 400 year anniversary of the publication of his 1st 2nd & 3rd Bookes (1600, 1601 & 1605).
This year was different and I have worked on 4 of the songs from this 1609 booke "A Musical Dreame or the Fourth Booke of Ayres 1609";
III. Once Did I Serve a Cruel Heart,
XI. And Is It Night?
XII. She Hath an Eye,
XIX. In Sherwood Lived Stout Robin Hood.

However, so far, I have only finished the recording of XII. She Hath an Eye, and it does not look like I have the time to finish the others before the year is out.
Lyrics
In Sherwood lived stout Robin Hood
Music by Robert Jones - Words likely by William Shakespeare

In Sherwood lived stout Robin Hood
An Archer great none greater.
His bow & shafts were sure & good,
Yet Cupid's were much better
Robin could shoot at many a Heart and miss,
Cupid at first could hit a heart of his,
Hey jolly Robin.
Hoe jolly Robin
Hey jolly Robin Hood.
Love finds out me
As well as thee
To follow me
To the green wood.

A noble thief was Robin Hood,
Wise was he could deceive him,
Yet Marrian in his bravest mood,
Could of his heart bereave him,
No greater thief lies hidden under skies.
Then beauty closely lodged in women's eyes.
Hey jolly Robin.

An Out-law was this Robin Hood,
His life free and unruly,
Yet to fair Marrian bound he stood
And loves debt paid her duely.
Whom curb of stricktest law could not hold in,
Love with obedience and a wink could win.
Hey jolly Robin.
