Bury Me Beneath the Willow

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Carter Family (Mother Maybelle, Helen, June, and Anita) and Johnny Cash:
My heart is sad and I’m in sorrow
For the only one that I love
When shall I see him, oh no never
Till I meet him in heaven above

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 over me

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

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 over me

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

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 over me
