Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies promenade go walking around you go
Back home and swing that man you know
Join all of your hands, circle left around that land
Left allemande and weave the ring
Bury me beneath the willow tree
Dosado, promenade around you see
When she find out where I'm sleeping
Maybe then well she will weep for me


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) square thru 4 hands around you go
Round the corner girl a dosado
Swing thru and then boys run to the right you do
Half tag, trade and roll
Right and left thru, swing that corner standing there
Swing that lady round and promenade around that square
And when she find out where I'm sleeping
Maybe then well she will weep for me


TAG

Maybe then well she will weep for me

Bury Me Under The Willow Tree Lyrics ID: 3982

My heart is sad and I'm in sorrow
For the only one I love
When shall I see him, oh, no, never
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

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

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

Lyrics by Bradley Kincaid.
Recorded by The Carter Family.
