Bury me under the weeping willow tree

My [A]heart is sad and [D]I'm in sorrow,

for the [A]only one I [E]love,

when [A]shall I see him, [D]oh, no never,

'till I [A]meet him in [E]heaven [A]above.


Oh, [A]bury me under the [D]weeping willow,

yes, [A]under the weeping willow [E]tree.

So [A]he may know where [D]I am sleeping,

and [A]perhaps he will weep over [A]me.


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."   + CHORUS


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.   + CHORUS
