Review about Bury me under the weeping willow

The Weeping Willow Tree



These are some of the lyrics I learned from my old 78 records on our wind up victrola. "My love is all across the ocean and I'm sitting here alone. Me fairly thinks I hear a whisper 'yes my love I'll soon be home.' So bury me beneath the willow, under the weeping and willow tree and when he knows that I am sleeping, then perhaps he'll weep for me."

It is all the same tune but this was an old original Carter Family song but I got another copy of theirs and it isn't quite the same words. Was it later updated and re-recorded?

Thanks to Jeanne Beers for submitting the review.
