Bury me beneath the willow
Under the weeping willow tree
When she hears that I am sleeping
Maybe then she'll think of me

My heart is sad and I'm in sorrow
Weeping for the one I love
When shall see her, oh, no never
'Til we meet in heaven above

Tomorrow was to be our wedding
But Lord, oh Lord, where can she be
She's gone, she's gone to find another
She no longer cares for me

She told me that she did not love me
I couldn't believe it was true
Until an angel softly whispered
She no longer cares for you

Place on my grave a snow white lily
To prove my love for her was true
To show the world I died of grieving
For her love I could not win
