Bury Me Beneath the Willow

My heart is sad and I’m lonely

For the only one I love

When will I see her oh no never

Till we meet in heaven above

So 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 dearly loved me

How could I believe it untrue

Until the angels softly whispered

She will prove untrue to you

Tomorrow was our wedding day

Oh God oh God where can he be

She’s out a-courting with another

And no longer cares for me
