Bury Me Beneath The Willow

print

   Oh, bury me beneath the willow
   Under the weeping willow tree
   So she will know where I am sleeping
   And perhaps she’ll weep for me

My heart is sad I am lonely
For the only one I love
When shall I see her oh no never
‘Til we meet in heaven above

She told me that she dearly loved me
How could I believe it untrue
Until the angels softly whispered
She will prove untrue to you

Tomorrow was to be our wedding
God oh God where can she be
She’s out a courting with another
And no longer cares for me
