Bury Me Beneath The Willow

My heart is sad and I’m in sorrow
Weeping for the one I love
When shall I see him, oh, no never
Till we meet in heaven above

Bury me beneath the willow
Under the weeping willow tree
When he hears that I am sleeping
Maybe then he will think of me

Tomorrow was to be our wedding
But lord oh lord where can she be
She’s gone, she’s gone to find another
She no longer cares for me

She told me that she did not love me
I couldn’t believe that it was true
Until an angel softly whispered
She no longer cares for you

Place on my grave a snow-white lily
To prove my love for her was true
To show the worlds I died of grieving
For her love I could not win
