Thread Name: Greensleeves ... Whence the name?
Subject: RE: GREENSLEEVES ... Whence the name?
You're all wrong. Eddie Greensleeves was the last to hold the title, and the tattered green sleeve, of a long line of champions of folksong. See Wikipedia "Eddie Greensleeves" if you don't believe me.

I saw him live, on my TV, on the Mike Wallace show, so I know whereof I speak.
