Kelly, Ruston - Weeping Willow Lyrics




"As I say, that was in 1927, the second day of August, I'll never forget it"

My heart is sad, and I'm in sorrow
For the only one I love
When shall I see him? Oh, no, never
'Til I meet him in heaven above

Oh, bury me under the Weeping Willow tree
So he may know where I am sleeping
Perhaps will weep over me

They told me that he did not love me
I could hardly believe it was true
Until an angel softly whispered
"He has proven untrue to you"

Oh, bury me under the Weeping Willow tree
So he may know where I am sleeping
Perhaps he will weep over me
And perhaps he will weep over me

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

Oh, bury me under the Weeping Willow tree
So he may know where I am sleeping
And perhaps will weep over me
And perhaps will weep over me

Bury me under the violets blue
To prove my love to him
Tell him that I'd die to save him
His love I never could win

Bury me under the Weeping Willow tree
So he may know where I am sleeping
And perhaps will weep over me
And perhaps will weep over me
And perhaps will weep over me
Perhaps will weep over me

    Ruston,
    I love your music! Have for quite a while now and I have to say, HOW ARE YOU NOT WINNING AWARDS BRO?? Main stream country has literally killed country music. You have Dan and Shay running around singing some bullshit about tequila and then Luke Bryan just sitting there waiting on a deer, drinking beer, and wasting bullets or some shit and Florida Georgia Line talking about how they “roll” guys like you give me hope that country can get back to its roots a little bit.

    My mom showed me you a couple years ago and from the first time I heard you I wanted to be completely enthralled in your music. I want the world to know the name Ruston Kelly and for everyone to feel their own individual impact from your music. You have made me a fan for life. Thanks Ruston. You do truly crate Black Magic! ( And btw I do know this is a cover, it’d just amazing!)

    Hey man, never heard this song before, so had to listen 10X. GREAT!!! Don't tell Kacey, but I'm listening to your album more than hers now (I keep both in my work truck and blast them all day long). Love your vocals!

  14. Mark C

    Rustons has it down. His music has helped me in my grieving process these last few months. That slide.

  15. abdou mooh

    I just love you and love what you sing bravo

  16. Zachary King

    Absolutely wonderful. You’ve captured the intangible nostalgia of what you must have felt in that house. You’ve done The Carter’s a great honor.
