Bury Me Under the Weeping Willow [#] Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
My heart is sad, and I'm in sorrow
For the only one I love
When shall I see him, oh, no, never
Till I meet him in heaven above
Verse 2
Oh, bury me under the weeping willow
Yes, under the weeping willow tree
So he may know where I am sleeping
And perhaps he will weep for me
Verse 3
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
Verse 4
Oh, bury me under the weeping willow
Yes, under the weeping willow tree
So he may know where I am sleeping
And perhaps he will weep for me
Verse 5
Tomorrow was our wedding day
But, oh Lord, where is he
He's gone to seek him another bride
And he cares no more for me
Verse 6
Oh, bury me under the weeping willow
Yes, under the weeping willow tree
So he may know where I am sleeping
And perhaps he will weep for me
Verse 7
Oh, bury me under the violets blue
To prove my love to him
Tell him that I would die to save him
For his love I never could win
Verse 8
Oh, bury me under the weeping willow
Yes, under the weeping willow tree
So he may know where I am sleeping
And perhaps he will weep for me
