He's on the corner, doin' another
And no longer cares for me
So bury me under the weeping willow

So that he may know where I am sleeping
And perhaps he'll wait for me.

He's out a-courtin' with another
And no longer cares for me
So bury me underneath the willow
Under the weeping willow tree
So that he may know where I am sleeping
And perhaps he'll weep for me.
