sing4peace Lyr Req: With Her Head Tucked Underneath Her Arm (87* d) RE: Lyr Req: With Her Head Tucked Underneath Her Arm 09 Sep 09

MtheGM -

Yes, I do think it is necessary and healthy to laugh in the face of horror. There is a reason why the fool was the only one allowed to tell the king the truth. This song does not condone cutting off heads, it actually calls Henry on the carpet for having done so.

I dare say that there may be some people who know absolutely nothing at all about Ann Boleyn or any of the other wives murdered by Henry. The song will outlive a lot of dusty old history books. That's why we are folk singers isn't it?
