Bury Me Beneath the Willow

My heart is sad and I'm in sorrow
Weeping for the one I love
When shall I see her oh no never
'Til we meet in heaven above

    Bury me beneath the willow
    Under the weeping willow tree
    When she hears that I am sleeping
    Maybe then she'll weep for me

Tomorrow was to be our wedding
God oh God where can she be
She's gone a courting with another
And no longer cares for me

She told me that she did not love me
I could not believe 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 world I died of grieving
For her love I could not win
