Bury Me Beneath the Willow

cho: Then bury me beneath the willow
     'Neath the weeping willow tree
     When he knows where I am sleeping
     Then perhaps he'll weep for me

My heart is sad and I am lonely
Thinking of the one I love
I know I never more shall see him
'Till we meet in heaven above.

They told me that he loved another
How could I believe them true
Until an angel softly whispered
He has proven his love untrue.

Tomorrow was to be our wedding
O Lord, O Lord where can he be
He's gone away to wed another
And no more he cares for  me.

From American Songbag, Sandburg
Recorded by Guthrie & Houston, and about a million early C&W artists
