Bury Me Beneath The Willow

Traditional – Verse and Chorus share the same melody

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.

(Chorus): 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.

She told me that she did not love me,
I could not believe it true.
Until an angel softly whispered,
She no longer cares for you.
(Chorus)

Tomorrow was to be our wedding,
God oh God where can she be.
She's gone, she’s gone and found another,
And no longer cares for me.
(Chorus)
