Ruston Kelly – Weeping Willow Lyrics

[Intro: A. P. Carter]
As I say, that was in 1927, the second day of August.​
I'll  never forget it.​

[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
'Til  I meet him in heaven above

[Chorus]
Oh,  bury me under the Weeping Willow tree
So he may know where I am sleeping
Perhaps  will weep over me

[Verse 2]
They told me that he did not love me
I could hardly believe it was true
Until an angel softly whispered
"He  has proven untrue to you"

[Chorus]
Oh, bury me under the Weeping Willow tree
So he may know where I am sleeping
Perhaps he will weep over me
And perhaps he will weep over me

[Verse 3]
Tomorrow was our wedding day
But no, Lord, where is he?
He's gone and found him another bride
And he cares no more for me

[Chorus]
Oh, bury me under the Weeping Willow tree
So he may know where I am sleeping
And perhaps will weep over me
And perhaps will weep over me

[Verse 4]
Bury me under the violets blue
To prove my love to him
Tell him that I'd die for him
His love I never could win

[Chorus]
Bury me under the Weeping Willow tree
So he may know where I am sleeping
And perhaps will weep over me
And perhaps will weep over me
And perhaps will weep over me
And perhaps will weep over me
