My heart is sad and full of sorrow,
Weeping for the one I love.
When shall I see her, oh, no never,
‘Till we meet in Heaven above.
Bury me beneath the willow,
Under the weeping willow tree.
So she may know where I am sleeping,
And perhaps she’ll weep for me.
Tomorrow is our wedding day,
But Lord, Lord where is she?
She’s gone, she’s gone to seek another,
She no longer cares for me.
She told me that she did not love me,
But I couldn’t believe it true.
Until an angel softly whispered,
She no longer cares for you.
Place on my grave a snow-white Lilly,
For to prove my love was true.
To show the world I died of grieving,
For her love I could not win.
