Bury Me Beneath the Willow

C                 F
My heart is sad and I’m lonely
C                 G7
For the only one I love
C             F
When will I see her oh no never
C     G7          C
Till we meet in heaven above

So bury me beneath the willow
C                     G7
Under the weeping willow tree
C                 F
So she will know where I am sleeping
C     G7                  C
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
