 Anne Boleyn  Kingston Trio






         3                     2m                       6m                2m


And just in case the axeman wants to give her an encore


                        3           *                          6m       *


She's got her head tucked underneath her arm.








Along the drafty corridors for miles and miles she goes.


            6m                *                                  3                          6m


She's going to catch a cold, poor thing, it's cold there when it blows,


             3                        2m                                 6m                    2m


And it's awfully awkward for the queen when she has to blow her nose 


               3                                          6


With her head tucked underneath her arm.

BRIDGE (CHORDS SAME AS INTRO):





           6m                 *              *        *


Now sometimes old King Henry gives a spread


       3                *                               6m       *


For all his pals and gals, the ghostly crew.


        6m                *                   *       *


The axeman carves the joints and cuts the bread


          3m               *                                6m      *


When in walks Anne Boleyn to spoil the "do"   (OR: "queer" the do)


        3                          2m                    6m       *


She holds her head up with a wild war whoop


       2m                 *              3        *


And Henry cries, "Don't drop it in the soup!"








         3                  *         6m            *


One day she found King Henry, he was in the castle bar


          3                        6m               *          3                       6m


Says he, "Are you Jane Seymour, Anne Boleyn or Katherine Parr?


          3                            2m             6m                     2m


Now how the sweet "ça ne fait rien" do I  know who you are


                 3           *                              6m       *


With your head tucked underneath your arm?"





              3           *                                           6m       *


The sentries think that it's a football that she carries in


        6m                 *         3                         6m


And when they see her, they all shout, Is Army going to win


           3                          2m                         6m                   2m


They think that it's Red Grange instead of poor old Anne Boleyn


                 3           *                             6m       *


With her head tucked underneath your arm?"








NOTES:  "Ça ne fait rien" is a French expression adopted into British English, literally meaning "It means nothing."  Kind of like saying "Never mind."  That is the phrase used in the last verse of the original song.  (The Red Grange verse—obviously American—was not part of the original song.   The pronunciation sounds a lot like "sa'n feh ree en" (or San fairy Anne).   (When I heard the KT version, I thought they were singing "Oh, how the sweet Sam Perry, Anne ... !")   (And if the diacritical marks aren't showing up properly on your computer, it's "Ca fait rien," but the "C" has a cedilla, making it a soft "c.")





"With Her Head Tucked Underneath Her Arm" (Anne Boleyn) was written in 1934 by R. P. Weston and Bert Lee and performed by Stanley Holloway. The Kingston Trio later recorded it, adding the Red Grange verse.
