Bury Me Under The Weeping Willow Lyrics

by Rosanne Cash

My heart is sad and I am in sorrow
For the only one I love
When shall I see him, oh no, never
Till we meet in heaven above

Oh, bury me beneath the willow
Under the weeping willow tree
So he may know where I am sleeping
And perhaps he'll weep for me

They told me that he did not love me
I could not believe it was true
Until an angel softly whispered
He has proven untrue to you

Oh, bury me beneath the willow
Under the weeping willow tree
So he may know where I am sleeping
And perhaps he'll weep for me

Tomorrow was our wedding day
But Lord, oh Lord, where is he?
He's gone to seek him another bride
And he cares no more for me

Oh, bury me beneath the willow
Under the weeping willow tree
So he may know where I am sleeping
And perhaps he'll weep for me
And perhaps he'll weep for me
