The Carter Family

as you can listen here : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCniFuHlPG0



CAPO 2nd fret.


Song patter : A D A E
              A D A E-A all over again and again


Verse 1 :
       A                 D
    My heart is sad and I'm in sorrow,
            A         E
    for the only one I love,
         A                   D
    when shall I see him, oh, no never,
          A          E        A
   'till I meet him in heaven above.


Chorus :
    A                  D
Oh, bury me under the weeping willow,
     A                        E
yes, under the weeping willow tree.
   A                 D
So he may know where I am sleeping,
    A               E         A
and perhaps he will weep over me.

Verse 2 :
    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 :
Oh, bury me under the weeping willow
Yes, under the weeping willow tree
So he may know where I am sleeping
And perhaps he will weep for me

Verse 3 :
    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 :
Oh, bury me under the weeping willow
Yes, under the weeping willow tree
So he may know where I am sleeping
And perhaps he will weep for me

Instrumental (around 2') (same instrumental than above)

Verse 4 :
Oh, bury me under the violets blue
To prove my love to him
Tell him that I would die to save him
For his love I never could win


Chorus :
Oh, bury me under the weeping willow
Yes, under the weeping willow tree
So he may know where I am sleeping
And perhaps he will weep for me
