The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music


Bury Me Beneath the Willow [core]

My heart is sad and I am lonely
For the only one I love
When shall I see her? Oh, no never
'Til we meet in Heaven above

Chorus
Oh 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 her untrue
Until the angels softly whispered
She will prove untrue to you

Tomorrow was our wedding day
Oh God, oh God, where can she be
She's out a-courting with another
And no longer cares for me
