The Willow Tree

Traditional Arrangement Michael Black
Down by the river is a tall willow tree Who weeps all night for you and me CHORUS: And its lay down low my love And its lay you down my own true love The shadows are falling, the night has come And its lay down low my love CHORUS: And its lay down low my love And its lay you down my own true love The shadows are falling, the night has come And its lay down low my love Under the branches of the brown thorn tree The wild bird is watching over Lios Na Shee CHORUS: And its lay down low my love And its lay you down my own true love The shadows are falling, the night has come And its lay down low my love On Lake Derravaragh there’s a white feathered swan Who sings of sorrow the whole night long CHORUS: And its lay down low my love And its lay you down my own true love The shadows are falling, the night has come And its lay down low my love The moon is moving over Poll na mBrón Where two lovers are lying on their bed of stone
