It's only been an hour Since he locked her in the tower The time has come He must be undone By the morning
Many times before The tyrant's opened up the door Then someone cries Still we close our eyes Not again
Meet me when the sun is in the western skies The fighting must begin before another someone dies Cross bows in the fire light Green sleeves waving Madmen raving Through the shattered night Yeah yeah yeah
Flames are getting higher Make it leap unto the spire Draw bridge down Cut it to the ground We shall dance around the fire
No more night We have seen the light Let it shine on bright Hang him higher, higher
Draw bridge down Cut it to the ground We shall dance all around the fire, around the fire
No more night we've seen the light let it shine on bright
Hang him higher, higher Put the man on the fire
Draw bridge down Cut it to the ground We gotta dance around the fire, the fire, the fire

Ricky from Killie, United KingdomWhile being interviewed for Deep Purple's Now What!? album, Roger Glover mentioned that back in 1972 during rehearsals for Who Do We Think We Are? Ritchie had a riff he was playing around with. The rest of the band liked it but he said he was going to keep it for a solo album - turns out it was an embryonic version of 16th Century Greensleeves!
Joe from Grants Pass, OrOne of more "interesting" songs on the album; of course I played along with every album I bought !!
