Under the willow she’s laid with care
(Sang a lone mother while weeping,)
Under the willow, with golden hair,
My little one’s quietly sleeping.
Chorus:
Fair, fair, and golden hair,
(Sang a lone mother while weeping,)
Fair, fair, and golden hair;
Under the willow she’s sleeping.
Under the willow by night and day
Sorrowing ever I ponder;
Free from its shadowy, gloomy ray,
Ah! never again can she wander.
Chorus:

4.
Under the willow no songs a heard,
Near where my darling lies dreaming;
Nought but the voice of some far of bird
Where life and its pleasures beaming.
Chorus:
Under the willow I breathe a prayer
Long to linger forever
Near to my angel with golden hair,
In lands where there’s sorrowing never.
Chorus:
