BURY ME UNDER THE WEEPING WILLOW (A.P., Maybelle & Sara Carter)
Performed by Natalie Merchant on "The House Carpenter's Daughter")
Chorded by Izzylou

Capo 2 
G 
Well, my heart is sad
      C                 G
And I am lonesome
                         D
For the only one I love
G
When shall we meet?
     C               G
Oh, no never
            D                        G
Till we meet in heaven above

G            G7      C          
Bury me underneath the willow
G                                        D
Under the weeping willow tree
            G
So that he may know
           C                      G
Where I am sleeping
           D                          G
And perhaps he'll weep for me

G 
Well, he told me that
        C                        G
He dearly loved me
                                  D
Oh, how could it be untrue?
   G                       C                      G
Until the angels softly whispered,
            D                G
"He'll prove untrue to you"

G            G7      C          
Bury me underneath the willow
G                                        D
Under the weeping willow tree
            G
So that he may know
           C                      G
Where I am sleeping
           D                          G
And perhaps he'll weep for me

G                                   C
Well, tomorrow was to be
                           G
Our wedding day
                                                   D
But oh, my God, where can he be?
       G                      C                    G
He's out a courting with another
               D                      G
And no longer cares for me

G            G7      C          
Bury me underneath the willow
G                                        D
Under the weeping willow tree
            G
So that he may know
           C                      G
Where I am sleeping
           D                          G
And perhaps he'll weep for me

Lack of formatting. Lack of accuracy. The verse and chorus chords are reversed and the chords in general are misplaced above the lyrics indicating incorrect chord changes. The verse goes from D > D7, not the chorus for example
