Chorus/ Intro
Won't you bury me beneath the tree
Where my family lies, where my family lies.
Let the fog lay low, on the mountain high!
Hear the willow cry, hear the willow cry!

Verse 1
Ain't no redemption for the things that I have done.
Devil owned you once the bullets left the gun.
All I can think of with this rope around my neck,
Is I'd be much obliged if you'd grant me one request!

Chorus:
Won't you bury me beneath the tree
Where my family lies, where my family lies.
Let the fog lay low, on the mountain high!
Hear the willow cry, hear the willow cry!

Verse 2
Their souls are black as coal
They walk the streets at night!
In my heart I knew that something wasn't right!
And, I went crazy when I caught her with that man!
But I felt better once the blood was on my hands!

Chorus:
Won't you bury me beneath the tree
Where my family lies, where my family lies.
Let the fog lay low, on the mountain high!
Hear the willow cry, hear the willow cry!

Chorus
Won't you bury me beneath the tree
Where my family lies, where my family lies.
Let the fog lay low, on the mountain high!
Hear the willow cry, hear the willow cry!
Hear the willow cry, hear the willow cry!
