Thread Name: Lyr/Origins: The Keeper
Subject: RE: Lyr/Origins: The Keeper
I have always thought this song was connected with Henry VIII & his wives, the last verse we sing :-

The Six doe was the best by far
She outlived her bold master
Her name was Good Queen Catherine Parr
Among the leaves so green-o
......the Keeper being the old bugger himself!
