       Bury Me Under the Weeping Willow - The Carter Family
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is my attempt at a tab for Bury Me Under the Weeping Willow as player
by the Carter Family on Disc 1 of the In the Shadow of Clinch Mountain 
boxset. 

This song is played in the key of B on the record, so in order to play along 
with the record, tune your guitar down 1/2 step.  I think this is likely how
Ma Carter would have played it, rather than capoing up to 2 and playing in
A, since it is much easier to hit the melody notes while strumming in C. 

For the instrumental break, listen to the record for the exact timing and 
for the strumming between the melody notes.

C                   F
My heart is sad and I'm in sorrow
C                   G
For the only one I love
C                     F
When shall I see him, oh, no, never
       C            G       C
Till I meet him in heaven above


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

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

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 break]

Tomorrow was our wedding day
But, Lord, oh, where is he
He's gone to seek him another bride
And he cares no more for me

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 break]

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

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
