Ann Hampton Callaway - Willow Weep For Me lyrics


Oh Lord, why did you send the darkness to me?
Are the shadows forever to be?
Where's the light I'm longing to see?
Oh Lord, once we met by the old willow tree,
Now you've gone and left nothing to me,
Nothing but a sweet memory.

Willow weep for me,
Willow weep for me,
Bend your branches green,
Along the stream that runs to sea,
Listen to my plea,
Listen willow and weep for me.

Gone my lover's dream,
Lovely summer dream,
Gone and left me here
To weep my tears into the stream,
Sad as I can be,
Hear me, willow, and weep for me.

Whisper to the wind
And say that love has sinned,
To leave my heart breakin'
And makin' a moan,
Murmur to the night,
To hide the starry light,
So none will find me sighing
And crying all a-lone.

Oh, weeping willow tree,
Weep in sympathy,
Bend your branches down
Along the ground and cover me,
When the shadows fall,
Bend, oh willow, and weep for me
